The Lemon Scented Geranium makes a beautiful and functional addition to a landscape. This annual, also known as Pelargonium 'Lemona’, boasts large pink flowers with dark pink accents near the eye. Enjoy the long-lasting flowers from summer through fall. The lobed, leathery foliage has a slight ruffle and provides contrast and texture but also features a lemon scent. The fresh scent is lovely and also serves as a natural insect repellent.

This geranium grows 1 to 2 feet tall and wide and features an upright growth habit that easily fits into a mixed bed or container where it adds height. Potted plants can be placed around a porch or patio, adding vibrant greenery and lemon fragrance while keeping mosquitoes and other pests at bay. This geranium is also deer resistant, making it a good choice if foraging animals are a frequent problem. 

Lemon Scented Geranium Care

Choose a sunny spot for the lemon-scented geranium because this beauty needs full sun. The soil should be moist but well drained. Plants in the ground need about one inch of water per week, but potted plants will need water when the top few inches of potting mix are dry. Deadhead the plant as flowers fade to maintain a tidy appearance and encourage new blooms. Fertilize this geranium every two to four weeks using a balanced, water-soluble plant food.

The Pelargonium 'Lemona' is often grown as an annual, but it does grow as a perennial in zones 9 through 10. The lemon-scented geranium can be cut back in the fall and brought indoors to live as a houseplant in winter. The plant will need a container with drainage and bright sunlight to handle a winter spent indoors.

Lemon Scented Geranium Spacing

Space lemon-scented geraniums about one foot apart in beds or borders to create a dense planting. These geraniums make wonderful container plants but ensure the pot has drainage. Plant 1 to 2 plants in a 12-inch wide container for use on a deck or outdoor space.
