Geranium, Scented “Peppermint” (Pelargonium tomentosum) potted plant, organic
Family: Geranium (Geraniaceae)
Hardy to Zone 8 to 12, otherwise grown as a summer annual or potted plant, brought in for the winter
Evergreen mounding perennial native to South Africa. Softly downy leaves, low-growing habit, giving rise to sprays of edible and aromatic white flowers. The leaves are dark green, very soft, covered with a velvety pubescence that invites rubbing, smelling deliciously of peppermint–so much so that smellers with eyes closed may readily be fooled. Sometimes I think this plant smells more like peppermint than peppermint itself! Easy in potted culture, outdoors on the patio in the summer, or in frost-free beds or in the rockery. As an indoor plant, gratifyingly green in the light of a window, requiring very little care in terms of primping or watering–a solid herbal houseplant.
