Thanks! Bad cut-and-paste when I was reversing the order.

The "テ" seems to have been mistakenly removed.

Daijs says "same as geranium". 

wikipedia seems to indicate that this is *technically* a subset of what would be colloquially called geraniums.

Pelargonium L'Hér. ex Aiton

I see the xref is already "usually a cultivated Pelargonium". 

Maybe someone would be interested in entering this name in the appropriate style (I'm not quite sure how to say this is always a Pelargonium, which would be considered a geranium  ).  If no one thinks it's worth it, I am not pushing for the change.  Happy myself with the katakana form + xref.

Thought about [rare], but 3000 ngrams and perfectly common on twitter.  Just uncommon vs. xref.

The English wikipedia page explains that one genus was split into two...

Confusion with Pelargonium:

Confusingly, "geranium" is also the common name of members of the genus Pelargonium, which are also in the family Geraniaceae and are widely grown as horticultural bedding plants. Linnaeus originally included all the species in one genus, Geranium, but they were later separated into two genera by Charles L’Héritier in 1789. Other former members of the genus are now classified in Erodium, including the plants known as filarees in North America.
