Plant Description

In warm climates Pelargonium graveolens is a perennial shrub reaching up to 4 feet in height.  In colder climates this beautifully aromatic plant can be grown in a container; however, it rarely reaches its full height potential.  When its deeply lobed, downy leaves are rubbed, its intoxicating sent of rose with heavy green undertones is released.  The blooms produced are a lovely, rosy-pink geranium shape.

 

Plant History

Native to southern Africa, Mozambique, South Africa and Zimbabwe.  The cultivation of this fragrant plant first appeared in literature in the 1633 edition of Generall Historie of Plantes.  While this aromatic plant was popular with European gardeners, it was not noticed by the perfume industry until 1819.
