Citronella plant (Pelargonium citrosum 'van Leenii') is a popular scented geranium with large, wrinkled, lacy green leaves that complement its pink petals. A member of the geranium family, the plant grows easily in pots and the ground—with a bushy spread of 2 feet tall and wide.

With its introduction to the market in the 1990s, the plant was heavily marketed as a plant to repel mosquitoes. The lemony fragrance emitted from its leaves is similar to citronella. While still a lovely addition to the garden, the mosquito repellant claims have proven untrue.

Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. These have been growing in one gallon containers.  The plants will be between 7 to 10 inches in height with well-developed roots.
