Geranium harveyii is a South African species which has silver foliage which spreads out from a central root stock. It can be smothering in the right conditions which can be risky for small neighboring plants,

I also grow Geranium harveyii.  I like that it can grow with little water in hot, dry spots.  The flowers are small, but the foliage is gorgeous.

We got this someone selling it as Pelargonium triste but it's very different to the one we grew from seed from Silverhill Seeds which has paler flowers and hairy foliage

And it already had seed from some earlier blooms
