Pelargonium Citrosa- Mosquito Plant

pelargonium citrosa mosquitoplant Pelargonium Citrosa  Mosquito PlantLatin Name: Pelargonium citrosum

The Mosquito Plant is a genetically engineered geranium hybrid with a unique characteristic: it repels mosquitoes! It is easily grown as a potted patio plant, and easily enjoyed for its attractive foliage and sweet lemony scent, as well as for its mosquito repelling powers. It produces a leafy, attractive, foot-tall plant during its first season. The Mosquito Plant was created by a Dutch botanist, who genetically incorporated traits of the Chinese citronella grass into a scented African geranium. The resulting cultivars still had the growth and habit of the geranium, and its sweet lemony citronella scent.
