Answer: The names of scented geraniums refer to their fragrances; lemon (Pelargonium crispum), lime (P. nervosum), rose (P. tomentosum) - the list goes on. These species of Pelargonium can reach 1-3 feet tall with an equal spread. Their flowers are small and average, but their leaves are used to flavor jellies and sauces. Freshly crushed leaves are delightful! There are Geranium Societies everywhere.
