3x Rose geranium Pelargonium 'Queen of Lemon' pink

Pelargonium citrosum ‘Queen of Lemon’
Fresh lemon scent
A cheerful plant with a lovely fresh lemony aroma. The citrus geranium 'Queen of Lemon' (Pelargonium citrosum) also keeps mosquitoes away. Besides its lovely lemon scent, the 'Queen of Lemon' also has beautiful, light pink flowers. We can enjoy the charming flowers from summer until late autumn.
The citrus geranium is not winter hardy. Before the first night frost, we put the plant in a light and cool place (7-10 degrees). We cut the branches back a little and remove the old leaves. Place the plant in full sun. Water the Pelargonium immediately after planting. Then we give them a bit of water every morning. Keep the root ball moist. For even more profuse blooming, we add some plant food to its water every week.
