Scented geraniums are easy, drought tolerant tender perennials. They are hardy only Zone 9, so in this area, you need to grow them as annuals, and bring them inside over the winter. Scented geraniums are rarely bothered by pests or disease and they make great houseplants!
Planted along a walkway, scented geraniums release a wonderful fragrance at the slightest touch. These fragrances can be either perfume scented or fruit scented and come from the tiny oil glands located on the leaves. The fruit scented geraniums are ideal for use in teas, desserts, jams, and jellies.
