Pelargonium 'Citrosum' or similar.

RE: "Mosquito Repeller"

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 ...


RE: "Mosquito Repeller"

Maybe Pelargonium Graveolens.
