This plant was being sold at a grocery store labeled as "Mosquito Repeller." But what is it, exactly?

Pelargonium 'Citrosum' or similar.

i believe.. in the common parlance.. a scented geranium ...

you might want to search if such is an urban myth ... ya know.. just because it smells like citornella oil .... might not mean it works as such ...
