Just acquired a Peppermint geranium!

It's the loveliest fuzzy leaf'd plant..and that wonderful smell! Ahh....

Now, I'll have two different distince geraniums to brush past purposely...Citronella and Peppermint. Yum!

And, as always, I continue to love the regular earthy geraniums I've got around here too....=)

Anyone know if the Peppermint ever blooms?

It should bloom. I have a lemon variety that blooms all the time. My daughter bought 2 from a greenhouse that was going out of buisness in Aug. I keep them in a sunny window in my sun room and feed them with 20-20-20 miracle grow ferilizer. The blossoms are a reddish pink. I planted them in a large pot with some swedish ivy. They really look nice together. Hope that helps. Kathryn in fall like wa state.

Hi Kathleen,
If the plant you have aquired is P.tomentosum then you have a lovely plant. This plant is very vigorous and may need a large pot, it will flower but, as with many of the scented pelargoniums, the flowers will be a secondary attraction to the scented leaves.
Best wishes
