Plant details

There is an enormous selection of scented geraniums that make excellent house and conservatory plants, but are also good for growing outdoors in pots or borders in summer. 'Lady Plymouth' is a well-known rose-scented variety which has been around since the 1800s. It is a variegated form of 'Graveolens', with cream variegated leaves and pale lavender flowers and may be propagated by taking cuttings in late summer. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it the Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
