description for "Scented Geraniums: Pelargonium 'Citrosa'"

'Citrosa' is an orange-scented geranium should be on every citrus-lover's plant listing. The medium-green leaves are coarse and finely cut. Plants grows to 36 inches tall. This is an excellent choice for containers--plant several in a tableside container to allow for frequent leaf rubbing to release the fresh citrus fragrance. 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
