Notes for Identification:

Scented Crispum Geranium (Pelargonium crispum) is a shrubby, stiff, upright, evergreen perennial with rounded, crinkled, scented, mid-green, leaves, 3/4-1in long.

Care: Indoors, grow in full light and good ventilation with shade from hot sun.  Water moderately during growth.  Apply a balanced liquid fertilizer every 10-14 days in spring and early summer, and a high potash fertilizer when in flower.  Water sparingly in winter.  If kept at 45-50ºF/7-10ºC, plants may flower over winter.  Otherwise cut back by up to 2/3 and keep almost dry.  When grown outdoors, lift bedding plants in autumn and over winter in dray, frost free conditions; cut back top growth by 1/3 in late winter and repot in late winter as new growth resumes.  Deadhead regularly.
