The All-Natural Mosquito Repellant

Here's why everyone's buzzing about Citronella:

- Attractive, citrus scented geranium
- Grows well on patios and decks
- Natural mosquito repelling oil in the leaves
- Convenient size, plant in containers and place them anywhere

The Sweet Scent of Citrus
If you love the great outdoors make sure you pick up a few Citronella plants. Not only is this geranium a drought-tolerant, vigorous grower, its thick green leaves give off a pleasant, citrusy fragrance that will carry throughout your garden or patio the whole summer long. Quickly growing up to 2 feet high, their compact mature size makes them a convenient plant to pot up and strategically place at patio entrances, along decks and throughout your garden. Plant them around your backyard retreat to make summer nights memorable.

Say Hello to Summer Nights
Citronella is the perfect outdoor plant. Not only does it look great in a decorative pot, the fresh scent of citrus will surround your outdoor spaces like no other plant can. Its fragrant leaves will also freshen up any room indoors. Once outdoors, let your Citronella plant work its magic. Try crushing one of the leaves, for a natural insect repellant that goes anywhere.

Citronella has soft leaves, similar to herbs like mint or basil. We grow your plants large, and then cut it back so it ships better. When they arrive, give them a drink then remove any damaged stems or leaves. Within days you’ll start seeing new foliage and stems popping out everywhere. Citronella is extremely fast growing.

This summer, it's time to enjoy your favorite outdoor spaces. Make sure you order several Citronella plants today.

Sadly four aren’t

Sadly they aren’t doing so well, I purchased five and only one is doing well. I have placed the other four into another pot together hoping that they will encourage each other :)

Very healthy

I received a total of 8 citronella plants (two 4-packs). They arrived a little dry, but after pulling off some of the dead leaves and getting them in the ground they seem to be doing great. They’ve only been in the ground a couple weeks but I can tell they’re growing and the leaves are vibrant. Very happy with them!

Cute Citronella Plants

I wasn't sure how the plants would survive when they arrived because although each plant was packaged separately (bought three), the material (soil) was dry and was scattered throughout the bigger box. Once I was able to plant and water the plants they seem to be flourishing! Love the sweet scent it gives off.
