The seeds arrived with me in about June or July last year and I sowed them immediately. Only one germinated and this was quickly grown on and is now a fairly large and sprawling plant. I was delighted to spot a flower on my plant this morning.
Diana Miller, in her book Pelargoniums, says that the first reference to this plant is in 1767 when it was described as a form of P.myrrhifolium but there has been much confusion about the nomenclature of this section. Found growing in mountainous regions of south-western Cape Province, P. longicaule is a low growing and spreading plant with white to pale pink flowers, often tinged yellow in bud.
I am looking forward to growing this in a hanging pot this year.

As far as I can see my plants all look OK, just need to find some time to tidy them up. I have spotted a few whitefly, but not many. I need to get the Neem oil out! We had -10C here one night!Delete
