Pelargonium fulgidum is a semi-succulent coastal species which is found from the northern Richterveld desert to about Ysterfontein in the south. The summers are hot and dry, but the plants often receive some early morning fog. Growth is mainly during the winter-rainfall period.
The striking red flowers appear from June to November.
Propagation is from seed or cuttings. Watering should be done mainly during the winter months.
