Scented Pelargoniums or Scented Geraniums belong to a broad genus with numerous semi-woody, mostly perennial and evergreen to semi-evergreen species mainly native of arid areas throughout South Africa, Namibia, and from East Africa to the Arabian peninsula. Few species reach further North into Turkey, Syria, Iran and Irak. Some species have succulent leaves. Most species have strongly scented leaves in many pleasant nuances and small to medium sized white, rose, lilac to red flowers. They are easily grown in pots in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 15°C. Cut back plants in mid spring to maintain an overall compact plant habit. Propgation can be easily made by taking cuttings of semi-woody branches in spring.
Sow seeds flat in any rich, well drained soil at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year. Keep seedlings in growth during their first winter with careful watering and a sunny spot at some 20°C.
