22 JulPelargonium grossularioides – Coconut Scented Geranium

P. grossularioides is a fun plant with a delightful coconut scent. Its ripply round leaves all grow out of the center. Also from the center come long tendrils with little plantlets and teeny-tiny little purple-red flowers. It blooms throughout the spring, summer and fall and produces seeds with little fuzzy “parachutes”. I was surprised – happily – to find Coconut geranium seedlings in some of my other potted plants.
