Plant in Pots and Enjoy for Many Years to Come
Place Citronella in pots around your patio. They are attractive and will always be at hand throughout the summer when you need them.
Looks Great Anywhere
Treat them as an annual if you live in zones 4-8. That means you should pot them up in a container and place them on your patio during the summer, when bugs are the most annoying. We recommend putting a plant in each corner of your patio. When the temperatures dip in late fall, bring the container indoors for a lemon-scented air freshener! If you live in the south (zones 9-11), plant them in the ground.
Your Citronella plants are pruned back before shipping to reduce foliage damage. Upon arrival, give them a drink and you will quickly see them perk up and put on new foliage. Trim any damaged leaves or stems. You'll be amazed at how fast Citronella grows.
Sweet Lemony Scent
People love the unique fragrance of citronella oil. Fortunately, bugs don't!
