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.

Don’t need mosquitoes 🦟

We have loved these plants. They are super easy to maintain and have kept flies and mosquitoes away from our patio and they don’t seem to bother our animals. Great purchase

Great Citronella

So far so good! I ordered a 4 pack and mine came a little wilted with some dead flowers. Planted them immediately and the next day they were already looking better. After a month, they are well established and smelling great. Love these

So many blooms!

These are gorgeous and seem to keep gophers and other predators away from my blueberry bushes.
