What is the family of the mosquito plant or citronella plant? It kinda looks like it belongs in the geranium family, but haven't had any flowers.

It kinda reminds me of a scented geranium. Can't remember the latin right now, but if you do a search on "scented geranium" or "citronella geranium", I'll bet you'll find it. Especially if you do a google.com image search for either of those.

Thanks you two. No mention of blooms. I like the plant though.

Most scented geraniums flower little, if at all. The ones that do flower have kind of insiginficant (compared to regular flowering geraniums) blooms; usually pinky purple, on spiky stems rather than clustered blooms. There are a few exceptions, but they are grown for foliage, rather than blooms :)
