The majority is about 250 specials of annuals, perennials and sub shrubs that came from South Africa, also a few species came from Australia, Middle East and other parts of Africa. Pelargonium diverse a lot because of their foliage which is frequently lobed, often aromatic, sometimes hairy, and occasionally interestingly marked. The flowers are simple with 5-petalled structures. Wild species of pelargonium rare blossom but the garden plants blossom profusely and are very bright colored.
