Description

Coconut Geranium - Heavenly Scented 

This geranium has very strong coconut-scented leaves and flowers, low-growing, wide-spreading plants. Blooms late spring to first frost with a trailing habit that works well in hanging baskets, over rocks and walls. Also grows well indoors.

Drought-tolerant, good for xeriscaping, easy to grow, needs little attention. Like many fine, old varieties, this fell out of favor as new hybrids were bred, but is being rediscovered and treasured by gardeners in the know.  Also called Gooseberry Geranium.

History

In Victorian times, it was found in parlors, on porches and in gardens. 

Uses

The scented leaves are baked into cakes and confections. Suitable for fresh or dried herbal arrangements, potpourris.
