Citronella plant

How cute is this tiny bloom??? This is Pelargonium citrosum or better known as a Citronella plant. We found it a a local nursery a couple months ago and decided to give it a try. If you rub the leaves it smells just like a citronella candle. Ross needs to put it in a pot. At the moment it is just sitting right off of the back porch. We haven't had any mosquitoes lately which is a shock with all of the rain we have had, so I guess it is doing the trick :)

PS~I see Purely Pomegranate and Wild Wasabi (new SU in colors) on that plant!!! Maybe an inspiration piece here!
