Photo - Rose Scented Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)

This is a terrific and tough geranium that is also drought tolerant.
Fragrant foliage and great cut flowers are another feature of this
perennial.  Like most geraniums, this one is frost sensitive. 
Any tempature under 35 degrees will kill the top, but the
plant will bounce back in the spring.  Rose Scented
Geraniums are also very easy to propogate from cuttings.
