Little Gem - Scented Leaf Pelargonium


In the dark chilly days of winter the scented pelargoniums come into their own.  No flowers I admit then, but pick one up and you are immediately transported to balmy summer days.    One of my favourites is Little Gem. This is a dwarf plant with abundant small deep rose-lavender flowers in summer.  The leaves are greyish green and incised and said to have the scent of oil of turpentine, but I find it quite pleasant and mild.  Little Gem is possibly a P.graveolens derivative and was introduced by Cannell's Nursery in the UK in 1910.
