Description

This relatively tall pelargonium (1-2m), is the most conspicuous pelargonium of the South West Cape and very showy when in flower. The leaves are cup-shaped and hairy, sometimes having an attractive red margin. The flowers, faintly scented, vary in colour from pink to pink-purple with darker veins on the upper two petals. A white form is sometimes seen. The seven fertile stamens bear bright orange coloured pollen. cucullatus = 'hooded', refers to the cupped leaves
