The flowers of Pelargonium citronellum show their two different petal shapes with dark markings on the upper petals clearly here. The far protruding pink styles with the three stigma branches pointing straight outwards are also clear to see. The stamens are curving outwards at this stage of the flowering. There is sometimes a little more pink colouring to the petals than on this white petalled specimen.
The roughness of the leaf texture is clearly in evidence, as well as the particular veining and toothed margins of the species. Lemon-scented pelargoniums, as they are known among gardeners, are common in cultivation today (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010).
