Otjihipa Pelargonium Overview

A rare, cliff-dwelling perennial, known only from sheer, south-facing cliffs of the Otjihipa Mountains in the Kaokoveld of northern Namibia. It is a cliff-squatter, forming solitary shrublets in crevices against the cliff. It grows fairly well in cultivation, best as a pot plant, and flowers in summer.
