  Seed info EDIT
  The seeds of pelargoniums are quite interesting in that, attached to the elliptically shaped seed, is a feathered, tail-like structure that is coiled in a spiral. The tail allows the seed to drill and secure itself in the soil if twisted around by the wind or by the movement of animals.
 
 
Description EDIT
Pelargonium ionidiflorum is a small, woody shrublet.
The stems are rough with leaf scars and are covered with a layer of greyish brown cork. The young stems are yellowish green and are always covered with glandular hairs. The beautiful light pink to dark violet pink flowers are produced all year round and have wine-red markings on the posterior petals.
