Plant Inspiration: Lady Plymouth
Lady Plymouth (Pelargonium graveolens)
Sun: Part shade to full sun. If indoors full sun is a must, so keep within 2 feet of a window (southern exposure preferred). Even though this plant will survive in part shade, remember the more sun the more flowers, so the less sun the less flowers.
Zone: USDA Hardiness zones 7 through 11
Soil: A well-drained, fertile garden soil and can even be grown in a soil-less media as well, as long as the pH is between 5-7.
Water: Normal to moist. Normal means you are watering the plant every time the top few inches of soil is dry to touch.
Habitat: An evergreen perennial (sometimes annual and biennial) that works both outdoors and indoors. This plant typically will bloom between mid spring and late winter depending on the zone.
Tip: Lady Plymouth attracts bees, butterflies and some birds. Their leaves are scented and can vary between scents of lemon, apple, rose, and orange.
