What’s growing in the dunes?

On a recent trip to Salt Rock,we found these little beauties growing on the hill above the beach. Does anyone know what they are?

    Geranium incanum. South Africa’s only(?) true geranium. What we know as geraniums are pelargoniums. https://www.plantzafrica.com/plantefg/geraniumincanum.htm

    This delightful plant is Geranium incanum. It is indigenous and grows easily. It looks great in hanging baskets too. See http://www.plantzafrica.com for more info. Many more plants featured in my gallery at http://www.treefrogs.co.za
