The umckaloabo is a member of the geranium family and is native to South Africa and Lesotho. It is well distributed within its native range, growing in many parts of the country. It grows in clumps, rising up to three feet in height, thriving in full sun. The plant is adapted to survive grassfires due to the underground network of root-like branches that it produces. The flowers of the umckaloabo are dark red with thin spindly petals. These flowers appear throughout the year, most prominently during the spring and summer months. The plant is a perennial and can last for years in cultivation, dying back during the winter within its wild habitat.
Umckaloabos are frequently cultivated as ornamental plants within their native range. They make handsome pot plants and are relatively easy to care for. They are incorporated into flowerbeds and are often used in landscaping.
