Geranium (Scented), Citronella is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Care And Keeps Bugs Away We have flower beds on three sides around the deck/patio. We planted two Citronella plants among the flowers on each side. We tucked one in each of the flowering pots which flank the sliding doors. No mater which way the breeze was flowing the bugs just stayed away. We are going to try wintering the plants when we do the same with our flowering Geraniums then we'll have more next year!
