|On different web sites I read contradicting statements about Pelargonium citrosum. Some say that it is edible like Pelargonium graveolens, while others (including this web site) claim that it is poisonous.
In fact, I happened to flavor my herbal teas every now and then with P. citrosum leaves, and I am still alive (I don't dismiss the possibility that my pelargonium might actually be P. graveolens).
Anyway, does anyone know about this for sure?

|It is listed as not toxic on the California Poison Control System.
It has been reported as toxic to dogs and cats.
A small amount to flavour teas should be okay.
It is not used in large quantities, as in a salad.
