Scientific name: Pelargonium citrosum
Common name: Mosquito Plant
This plant is commonly found under a number of names, such as citronella plant, mosquito plant geranium, citrosa geranium and Pelargonium citrosum. Though many of its names leave the impression that it contains citronella, which is a common ingredient in insect repellent, the plant is actually a variety of scented geranium that simply produces a citronella-like scent when the leaves are crushed. The mosquito plant geranium is a hybridized plant that came about from Chinese citronella grass and African geranium.
