We are all accustomed to seeing traditional geraniums planted as a striking bedding plant in the summer, and while these are good examples of the pelargonium family, the scented-leaf geraniums are somewhat more demure, but equally as fabulous as plants, for both indoors and out.
The scented-leaf geraniums tend to have very interesting leaf shapes and colours, ranging from dark green through to very pale lime, as well as variegated varieties too. The borders of the leaves can be deeply cut or frilled and vary in size, and of course, a host of wonderful fragrances to please the nose.
These pelargoniums also have extremely pretty flowers which are held in clusters and are long lived. The height of a plant can be anything from 30 to 90 cm. The flowers may be white, pink, purple, red or variegated and usually have no fragrance.
