Begin your own Age of Discovery with surprising, delightful pelargoniums, the International Herb Association’s 2006 Herb of the Year.
‘Paton’s Unique’ is a robust, lightly pungent or apricot-scented variety of pelargonium. Often sold in the United States as ‘Apricot’, ‘Paton’s Unique’ is the original English name, dating from 1870.
The sweet fragrance of P. odoratissimum is apple, with almost camphor-like undertones.
‘Cinnamon Rose’ is an excellent culinary pelargonium with a particularly lovely rose scent and no cinnamon overtone. Use it for flavoring sugar, flour, pound cake or apple jelly.
‘Rober’s Lemon Rose’ is a longtime favorite because of its reliability in the garden. It's also a hit with cooks due to its rosy-lemon perfume.
‘Concolor Lace’ is easy to grow. Because of its delicate nature and slower growing habit, this plant works well for container gardens. It often is labeled ‘Filbert’ incorrectly, a scent some people detect in the leaves.
