|P. tomentosum is a vigorous, evergreen perennial with heart-shaped, velvety, peppermint-scented, green leaves, on scrambling stems. Produces clusters, of 4-15 butterfly-shaped white flowers, 1/2 inch across. Native to South Africa.
This plant is commonly called a geranium, which can be confusing. The genus is Pelargonium, though there is a completely different group of plants with the genus name Geranium, which are commonly called Cranesbills. Remove dead flowers to promote new growth. Excellent container or border plant. Good houseplant.
