Oak Leaf Geranium Overview
Pelargonium quercifolium is commonly known as Oak Leaf Geranium or Almond Geranium. This tender perennial shrub from South Africa has an upright branching habit with palmately-lobed, triangular, toothed leaves that give off a strong scent described as balm-like or Balsam scented. Frequently grown as a summer bedding plant in colder climates, this sun-loving plant will produce small clusters of pale pink flowers. In warmer climates with long hours of daylight, they will flower almost all the time. It is equally happy being grown inside on sunny windowsills or in containers on the patio. Provide them with protection from winter frosts, and they will delight you for years.
