Scented Geranium 'Prince of Orange' (Pelargonium ‘Prince of Orange’) Herb in 1L Pot
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. Great grown in containers on the patio where the smell of the leaves can be enjoyed as you brush past.
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.
Scented Geranium 'Prince of Orange' has a distinctive lovely, citrus scent and large leaves, it has pretty clusters of pale pinkish-lavender flowers marked with purple veins in Summer which can be used as a cut flower too. As all the scented geraniums need protection from frost they make wonderful pot plants and can be brought into the house or conservatory over winter months where they will thrive and give pleasure for very little attention.
Scented Geraniums are tender perennials and as such must be planted out only after the risk of the first frost is past, they need full sun in a sheltered position and well drained soil.
An infusion made from the leaves can be used to flavour drinks, cakes and even ice-cream.
