I particularly admire this scented geranium variety for its charmingly petite characteristics. Its compact growth habit and small, dense leaves make it an excellent choice for the casual bonsai enthusiast. And, adding to its overall uniqueness, this variety boasts vibrant yellow variegation and a zesty lemon fragrance. I'd have to say this is my favorite when it comes to scented geraniums. 

Growth Form: Varies from 6 inches to 1.5 Feet tall and wide depending on growth conditions.
Light: Full sun to partial shade. They require at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight daily to promote healthy growth and flowering.
Water: Moderate water. It is important to allow the soil to dry out slightly between watering sessions to avoid overwatering, as excessive moisture can lead to root rot. Can tolerate low water, but the plant will not be as attractive. 
Soil: well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH level. Standard Potting mix will work, or more ideally A mix of potting soil and perlite or sand can help improve drainage. Avoid heavy clay soils that retain excessive moisture.
The hardiness of specific cultivars can vary, but most scented geraniums are suitable for USDA zones 9-11. Can be overwintered in a bright indoor area in zones 8 and below.
Type: Evergreen Perennial
Maintenance and special care: Relatively low-maintenance plants. Regular deadheading, removing spent flowers, encourages continuous blooming. Pruning is beneficial for shaping and maintaining the desired size of the plant. Scented geraniums benefit from a balanced fertilizer application during the growing season to promote healthy foliage and flowering.
