Peppermint Scented Geranium Fragrant Pelargonium tomentosum
Peppermint Scented Geranium, Pelargonium tomentosum, has soft, fuzzy foliage with a distinct peppermint scent. Peppermint scented geranium is my favorite of all the fragrant pelargoniums. Scented geranium plants grow well in pots or in the herb garden. Plant them along a pathway where the fragrance can be appreciated when it is brushed against.The main listing photograph is of a one year old plant in the garden. You will receive a fully rooted plant in a 4" pot.
Soft, fuzzy leaves release a strong peppermint scent when crushed. The peppermint geranium has a bushy sprawling habit. This variety can grow up to 2 feet tall. It does bear sporadic white flowers in the summer. I treat scented pelargoniums as annuals here in my zone 6 garden. They are easy to pot up and bring indoors for the winter at the end of the growing season.
I grow this plant for it's ornamental value and fragrance. The leaves can be used in jellies and sugars. The fragrant foliage is a wonderful addition to small cut flower arrangements.
