Gardeners' Notes:

This is absolutely my favorite scented geranium. I bought it about 10 years ago as a 4-inch plant, and it is now HUGE, at LEAST a 4' by 4' by 3' high mass in my front yard. It gets super-hot afternoon sun in the summer, shrugs it off, and blooms lovely red flowers from spring to fall. It stayed small in pots, died back to the root system the first winter it was in the ground, but after that, it came back with a vengeance and hasn't stopped since!

Also known as 'Shottesham's Pet and 'Filbert', this charming lacy-leaved Pelargonium has pungent leaves. Some liken the scent to hazelnuts. The light green leaves set off the cherry red flowers beautifully.
