Saturday's walk around the nursery - Part 4

This has to be one of the handiest plants to have around. Your very own Mosquito repelent. The plant is a Pelargonium citrosum van Leenii. So check out your local nursery and see if you have it. They do get lovely flowers on too.
A very unusual Philodendron named Rojo Congo which has almost black stems and leaves.
It was early in the morning and they had just given the roses water.
This one looks and feels like velvet and has the most beautiful perfume.
I wonder if the worm comes free with it? :)
