The family of Pelargoniums are commonly known as Geranium, with many scented varieties of Geranium available at Hooksgreen Herbs. Very good patio or house plant, giving a great indoor display of flowers whilst giving lovley scent to any indoor area.
Scented Geraniums are a very popular evergreen plant of medium height and spread. They produce lovely flowers that are mainly pink, but other varieties produce either mauve, orange or white flowers.
The different varieties of Geranium have scented leaves, including rose, lemon, nutmeg, pine, peppermint, apple orange and spicy. The aromatic foliage is popular with the perfume industry for certain perfumes and oils for aromatherapy.
Geranium leaves can be used for culinary purposes, but are rarely eaten and should be removed from the cooking process and treated similarly to bay leaves.
