Plant description

Latin Name : Pelargonium x asperum cv bourbon
English Name : Geranium Bourbon
French Name : Géranium bourbon
Family : Geraniaceae
Origin : Réunion, Madagascar, Congo

History and Origin

This sub shrub can reach up to 50 cm in height. Its long green three-lobed leaves with reddish veins are highly indented and velvety. The buds are pinkish; the small flowers white or purple, with five petals of which two have red striations. Geranium is now very common for its aesthetic appearance and ability to repel insects. Furthermore, this ornamental plant is well-known for its low maintenance. Today, there are hundreds of geranium species, of which, mainly for aromatherapy, geranium rosat and geranium bourbon. They are spread throughout the world, in China, Morocco, Egypt, Madagascar and Réunion Island, from which the name "bourbon", former name of the island, was taken.

Associated to the planet Venus, geranium was often used to dilute rose oil to lower its costs.
Geranium essential oil is used in dermatology since many years. It is particularly recommended for acne problems.

Geranium bourbon, more expensive, differs from geranium rosat coming from Egypt, China, South Africa or Morocco, by its more gentle and delicate perfume.
