Plant Info

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 came about from taking specific genes of two other plants – Chinese citronella grass and African geranium.


So the big question still remains. Do citronella plants really repel mosquitoes? Because the plant releases its smell when touched, it is thought to work best as a repellent when the leaves are crushed and rubbed on the skin as mosquitoes are supposed to be offended by its citronella scent. However, research has shown that this mosquito repellent plant is actually ineffective.

While it might be pretty and smells good, the mosquitoes still keep coming. Thank goodness for bug zappers! A true citronella plant closely resembles lemongrass, while this imposter is larger with foliage that resembles parsley leaves.

It also produces lavender blooms in the summer. How to Care for Citronella Growing and caring for mosquito plants is easy.

And even though it may not be an actual mosquito repellent plant, it makes an ideal plant both indoors and out.
