CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Plant the citronella plant in a sunny location with well-draining soil. This plant responds well to pruning, so don't be afraid to cut some to add to your regular bouquet. While this plant does not need a lot of fertilization and is quite hardy to the elements, it will do best if fertilized once in a while and if protected from prolonged freezing temperatures.

DESCRIPTION

The citronella plant, or mosquito plant geranium, is prized for its citrusy scent when the leaves are crushed. The leaves have a lacey quality and it produces small, pink or violet flowers. The plant grows from 2 to 4 feet tall. Contrary to popular belief, this plant does not repel mosquitoes but may discourage them.
