Pelargonium luteolum is a geophytic winter grower that occurs from Namaqualand southwards to the Little Karoo and eastwards to the Steytlerville area.
During winter the plants have hairy green leaves that are dissected into lobes of varying size. The yellow or pink flowers appear in February when the plants are dormant and without leaves.
Typical of the species are the three petals that overlap, hiding the anthers.
