Geranium (Scented)

Scented geraniums are fragrant-leaved, woody-based, tender perennials of the genus Pelargonium. As such they are members of the larger Geranium Family (Geraniaceae), which makes scented geraniums close relatives of the common bedding geranium (Pelargonium x hortorum) and distant relatives of the true hardy perennial geraniums (genus Geranium). Scented geraniums were widely grown in the Victorian era for use in perfumery, potpourris, and occasionally for cooking. Among modern herb and cottage garden enthusiasts they are enjoying resurgence in vogue and make easy-care, fragrant houseplants and bedding plants, readily propagated by cuttings and adaptable to containers, window boxes, and hanging baskets.
