P. fruticosimum loves to bloom! It has flowers almost all the time. The foliage is interesting – very narrow and finely divided. It is touchy about getting over-dry. I have to grow it where the sprinklers can “rain” on it. Well worth the trouble. Not to give Fruticosimum a bad reputation! I suspect that in a more humid climate, it would be practically trouble free!

P. fruticosimum is a show-off.

Copthorne is a cedar scented geranium. (Unbelievable as it may seem, Max likes the taste of it.) The flower is very similar to P. ‘Orange’, but Copthorne is more lavendar.

Pelargonium ‘Crowfoot’ is a mint scented geranium.

This darling scented geranium has finely divided leaves with a light mint scent. I thought it was going to bloom itself to death! Twice I disbudded it because it looked stressed. It promptly greened up and went back to blooming. It produces seed, too!

Abundance lives up to its name in every possible way. It covers itself with blooms for a long period of time. Almost every blooms creates a seedhead. The lemon-scented foliage is thick and bushy.

I want to thank reader Jeanie for bringing Abundance to my attention. It’s my favorite “new-this-year” scented geranium.

All my geraniums are very pretty right now. I have a lot of exciting pictures coming up. Celery scented geranium is puting on a particularly fine display. The flower stems are very thin, so the flowers have the appearance of a flock of butterflies.

French Vanilla is very similar to Nutmeg scented geranium. I think French Vanilla’s name is based on wishful thinking. To me it has a spicy citrus smell.
