The sticky leaves of Pelargonium album are simple, broadly rounded to heart-shaped with a few large, shallow lobes and irregular marginal teeth. Their long petioles are covered in hairs, including long and short glandular ones. Leaf stipules are triangular or have a couple of teeth.
Notable leaf veins radiate from the leaf bases, branching repeatedly along the way to the margins. Veins are prominent on the lower leaf surface, recessed on top. The leaves are fragrant, reminding of the scent of apples or mint. Glandular hairs that cover both leaf surfaces are responsible for the scent (www.plantzafrica.com).
