I noticed that all the pelargoniums are listed as "Scented-leaved Geranium (Pelargonium)". Not all of them are scented though. The Ivy (Pelargonium x peltatum), Three-colored Geranium (Pelargonium tricolor), Martha Washington Geranium (Pelargonium domesticum) and Zonal or Fish (Pelargonium x hortorum) do not fit in the scented category.

Here is the parent plant:

Pelargoniums (Pelargonium)

Are you suggesting we get rid of "Scented-leaved Geranium" as one of the common names, and also rename the parent plant to, perhaps, simply "Pelargonium"?

Yes, I think that is best, the scented classification simply doesn't apply to the entire pelargonium category.

I noticed that Wilhelm Langguth is listed twice. As a Fish Geranium and a Scented Leaved.

All the online sources show it with 2 G's so I can move the images from the other one and delete the incorrectly spelled one.
Unless Dave has already done that. *Blush* Green Grin!
