Spicy geranium 'Atomic Snowflake' aka Scented Pelargonium "Atomic Snowflake" has a heavenly scent mix of rose, lemon-rose and pale eucalyptus flavors.
I like to touch Pelargonium's Atomic Snowflake slightly ruffled leaves with smooth leathery texture. The foliage is mid-green, rounded like the classic geranium shaped leaves, with yellow or cream variegation.
Atomic Snowflake grows quickly and need to be trimmed to maintain it a nice shape.
I was pruning my plant with a formal upright shape and now it looks like a pelargonium bonsai. This three years old plant's trunk looks very promising for a bonsai , and after two seasons of training, her leaves had became already smaller.
Atomic Snowflake makes a lot of attractive clusters of small, mauve flowers which are more fragrant than leaves. Looks like I'm not the only one who likes their lavender-pink blossom. With their eye-catching florets like small bouquets on tall stems, offers nectar in spring, summer and fall for hummingbirds, butterflies and bees and shines bright in sunlight.
Why I love this plant? Is edible, has aromatic properties, looks like a showy bonsai plant and has a heavenly scent!
