Pelargonium tomentosum

Fancy leaved Geranium
A picture can't quite capture why we love this plant. Visually you can sense the softness of its large velvet green foliage, but you need to rub its leave to appreciate its delicious minty scent. P. tomentosum can become quite large as a specimen in the open garden, but it stays a reasonable 2' x 2' plant in containers, especially if you are always pinching off the leaves for scented bouquets.
