    Question about the citronella plant. I live north of Houston TX and I wanted to plant them in my front yard. I k ow it says in the description to bring in in the winter. Could they survive outside if I covered them up?

      Hi Andrew, Those directions are for the majority of us living in the temperate USA. You’re in a zone 9a, the plant will probably overwinter fine for you. Pelargonium are native to South Africa, why not South USA? r
