Robers Lemon Rose Scented Geranium - Pelargonium graveolens
Rober’s Lemon Rose Scented Geranium is a vigorous, upright growing plant reaching 90 cm by 90 cm in ideal conditions. It has soft grey-green leaves with scalloped edges with small pale pink-mauve flowers. The spicy scent is of rose with a hint of lemon undertone. This plant is sometimes called the Tomato Geranium due to the shape of its leaves resembling tomato plants. Plant in almost any well drained spot in the garden and does well in poor dry soils and exposed positions. Plant near paths for pleasant fragrance. However, it must be protected from cold winters and frost. For this reason I grow mine in pots and move them to a protected area in winter.
Both the leaves and flowers can used in cooking.
Foliage is used in floral arrangements and will last up to 7 days.
