Comments: There are probably 100 or more varieties of scented geraniums. Among the more popular kinds are those with scents like apples, roses, lemons and many more. These geraniums come in various sizes, shapes, and with many colors of flowers. They all have aromatic foliage. As annuals they are grown outdoors where not hardy. Freezing temperature will severly damage or kill these plants. Growing them in containers is popular, as they can be brought indoors for the winter. They may be grown in full sunlight, if well watered.
