4.5" Garden Exclusives - Geranium Citronella

Also referred to as the "mosquito plant," this lemon scented geranium has been known to assist in repelling mosquitos.  

Lightly "crushing" the leaves, or rubbing a leaf on your skin produces the best results.  Warning: Some studies show that the Geranium Citronella may be mildly toxic to pets. May be planted in containers, beds, and even as a houseplant.
