This is one of my very favorite plants. It is beautiful in flower and then in leaf, all throughout the year. The wonderfully scented leaves, which have a scent described as pine-like or like sweetbriar, are irresistible to pick as you walk by. My garden visitors always love to take a leaf home, for the scent. It is also easy to divide. The Bigroot Geranium will happily transplant anywhere. It is very easy to divide and you will only need to purchase this plant once.
