Product Description

The Mosquito Plant is a genetically engineered geranium hybrid with a unique characteristic: it repels mosquitoes! It is easily grown as a potted patio plant, and easily enjoyed for its attractive foliage and sweet lemony scent, as well as for its mosquito repelling powers. It produces a leafy, attractive, foot-tall plant during its first season. Citronella is the substance in citronella candles, which have long been used to deter mosquitoes. It doesn't harm them, but they don't like citronella and avoid it. It is most effective as a repellent if you crush a few leaves and rub them on your skin. Like most geraniums, the Mosquito Plant is normally potted and grown outdoors during the warm season(after last and before first frosts). During the colder seasons the plants can be wintered-over indoors. Immediate shipping, starter plant in a 2.5" growers pot
