Pelargoniums, commonly known as geraniums, are the red and pink flowering plants that we cultivate for our window boxes, and for ubiquitous bedding in our parks and along walkways and city streets, knowing they can be relied upon to earn their keep with cheerful color all summer long. There is, however, one species within the genus more highly regarded for its scented leaves than its flowers, pelargonium graveolens. In turn, there are many different cultivars within that species, but most popular is one with strongly rose-scented leaves (‘rosat’). It is more simply called, rose geranium, and it is the natural essence from this variety which is infused into Blossom Water Pomegranate Geranium. Native to the Cape of South Africa, seventeenth century Dutch sailors were the first to introduce rose geranium to Europe. Rose geranium became chic during the English Victorian era, where it was often kept potted in society parlors so that a fresh sprig was at hand whenever necessary to ‘rejuvenate’ the senses; the leaves were also placed in finger bowls for formal dining. Today, it is cultivated on a large scale and its foliage distilled for the rose scent and subtle flavor.
