|P. crispum is a shrubby, evergreen perennial with rounded, crinkled, lemon-scented green foliage. Single, pale mauve flowers, are borne in clusters, from summer to fall. Native to South Africa. 'Variegated Prince Rupert' has lemon-scented leaves with cream margins.
This plant is commonly called a geranium, which can be confusing. The genus is Pelargonium, though there is a completely different group of plants with the genus name Geranium, which are commonly called Cranesbills. Remove dead flowers to promote new growth. Excellent container or border plant. Good houseplant.
