Fringed Apple Scented Geranium
looks a lot like Nutmeg Scented Geranium but the fragrance is more of a sour
There are several scented geraniums in this
group of small leaved geraniums and, based on enough difference in the way
they smell, we have narrowed down our two favorites to Fringed Apple and
Both have young green leaves that turn gray
as the plant goes through the summer. Both have these small apple blossom
like flowers that cover the plant throughout most of the growing season.
They make perfect container plants because
they are small enough to be happy in a two to five gallon pot, at least for
a few years. All plants get root bound and this will slow growth or kill the
plant if not addressed.
Fringed Apple Scented Geranium stays evergreen in
zone 8 most winters which tend to get down into the mid to low 20's here.
