description for "Scented Geraniums: Pelargonium 'Brilliant'"

'Brilliant' is a lovely hybrid with dark green, crispy, cupped leaves and bears a pungent, partially citrus fragrance. It bears lovely crimson/cerise blossoms, and is so large that only a substantial pot (12-14 inch) will hold it. It looks best at the back of a border or in a sunny corner. Tender perennial. Overwinters outdoors in zones 8-10; should be potted and brought indoors in mid-autumn in colder climates. Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
