For years, my herb garden back in Vermont was filled with
a variety of scented geraniums... fragrant, flowering, and easy!
On a whim this spring, I have decided to introduce some
to our flower gardens here in South Jersey...
Some will be potted in terra cotta and some will take up
permanent residence in the garden soil.
Growing right alongside our brick patio... "Old Fashioned Rose Scented"
It is so fragrant, the scent lingers on your finger tips.
"Lady Plymouth Rose" is along the side garden that I put in
two years ago. This geranium has variegated, well-defined leaves.
This variety... "Cinnamon Geranium"
has much smaller leaves by comparison.
But the brilliant fuchsia flowers
more than make up for the diminutive leaves!
Ah... and then the "impostors!"
We found these "Hen and Chicks" at an Amish farm in
Lancaster County earlier this week... Katie is going to incorporate
them in a metal wreath ring with sphagnum moss.
(we will keep you posted on this one!)
