Rober’s Lemon-Rose Geranium
Pelargonium graveolens 'Rober’s Lemon-Rose'
Uses: Culinary/Aromatic Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 10-11+)
A sweet lemon-rose blend that is both refreshing and calming. Unique tomato-like leaves. Vigorous growth habit but will only grow as large as its container allows, which is convenient for those interested in creating fairy gardens. Produces pink-lavender flowers. Like most geraniums, this variety was introduced to Europe in the 17th and 18th century by sailors returning from Cape of Good Hope, South Africa. These exotic plants were collected by naturalists hoping to discover new sources of food and medicine. The French later discovered its commercial potential through its fragrant essential oils and are still adored today for their pleasing aromas and stunning blossoms. Geraniums love the sun and dry, well-drained, rich, loamy and slightly acidic soil. Soil must drain quickly while retaining moisture. Therefore, instead of standard potting mix, plant in a soil-less mix of peat moss, perlite, vermiculite, shredded bark and sand. Prune back up to half the foliage in late winter or early spring to encourage a denser bushy growth while preventing woody and leggy stems. Ht 18 inches.
