Citronella Geranium

The Citronella Geranium plant is a scented geranium variety, produced by crossing the Chinese Citronella grass and African Geranium, to simply produce a citronella-like scent when leaves are brushed or crushed. Although this scent has been proven to not repel mosquitos, their appearance, scent, and flowering capabilities are difficult to resist. They are relatively easy to care for and don't require too much care, perfect for beginners and experienced gardeners alike.
