Pelargonium citrosum is a perennial subshrub with fragrant leaves that are reminiscent of citronella. Pelargonium 'citrosum'P. 'citrosum' is marketed as "mosquito plant" or "citrosa geranium" in stores in the United States and Canada, even though research from the University of Guelph indicates the plant is ineffective against Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. It would be nice to be able to plant something that would repel mosquitoes and other nuisance insects from outdoor living spaces.
