P. endlicherianum is a clump-forming perennial. It has thickened rhizomes which run just below or across the surface of the soil. It can grow to more than 40 cm tall.

How to grow

P. endlicherianum is the hardiest species of Pelargonium. It can withstand the winter climate in much of the UK, providing it is planted in a position which avoids heavy rainfall. This makes it a good species for the alpine house.

An ordinary, well-drained soil will suit. Ensure it receives plenty of sun to allow the rhizome to ripen.


Propagation is easy from seed, stem-cutting or division of the rhizome.
