Growing & using Prince Rupert Lemon Scented Geranium
Prince Rupert Scented Geranium is a variegated form of Lemon Crispum. Its crinkled leaves are about the size of a nickel. Like most variegated plants, Prince Rupert has a highlighting affect when planted among dark green plants. Prince Rupert grows well in a container but check seasonally to see if it has become rootbound. Repotting is usually necessary in the spring.
Lemon crispum varieties are useful in cooking and are often used to scent sugar for baked goods. Flowers can be used for salads or decorationg. The Victorians like to put the leaves in bowls of water to cleanse the fingers at the dinner table.
Prince Rupert Scented Geranium would add a lot of fun to our Gourmet Herb Garden Six Pack.
