I also have a few Pelargoniums with scented leaves
This is quite a favourite of mine

I was wondering why Snowy but I see now. Does it flower?

Yes tiny ones. I'll photo them when it starts

There's also Creamy Nutmeg, which is very similar, but creamier (surprisingly)

Neat plant! I've never seen one of these before. Is it trailing or an up-right form?

Are you able to save seeds from Pelargoniums?

Although I suppose it does send out trailing shoots too
Hmm

It's flowering now so here's a pic - sorry not quite in focus, but the flowers are tiny and there was a bit of a breeze (well that's my excuse lol)

Sorry I missed your seed question completely roshana.
This type of Pelargonium is unlikely to come true from seed, even if it did set some, as it's a hybrid.
The hybrids are mostly very easy to raise from cuttings though, so they usually aren't too expensive...

Thanks for the seed answers. I am just baffled about the pele. seeds because I have purchased some and planted them but I can't ever seem to find them on the flowers themselves! Sure is a pretty plant.

Very nice DeepRoots :)
I like the whole fragrans group, the leaves are so soft and almost velvety, but very fine velvet.
They look good with the haze of small flowers hovering over the leaves too
