I love this Geranium with it's tomato leaf shape. It has added a different texture in my container area, and is just about to bloom. I am about a month away from doing some cuttings, of all my geraniums as to have some for next year. I picked up this treasure at our Riverbank's Botanical Gardens Sale this year. I am hooked on geraniums.

This has a slight lemon undertone to its rose scent, helping to alleviate the possible cloying aroma of some other rose-scented pelargoniums. Very nice.
