description for "Scented Geraniums: Pelargonium 'Nervosum'"

Citrus-scented geraniums are among the most highly fragrant of the scented geraniums. With just a brush of a leaf from a lime-scented geranium, your garden will be filled with the sharp scent of lime citrus. The plant has small dark leaves with finely-cut edges and bears deep lavender flowers. This is one of the most strongly citrus-scented geraniums. 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
