      Geraniums and pelargoniums are often conflated, and it's true they're in the same plant family. But – as in most families! – while they have similarities, they differ in many ways too. Pelargoniums are woody-based perennials (most of them native to South Africa) that endure light frosts but not hard freezes and have slightly asymmetrical flowers in clusters. True geraniums, on the other hand, belong to the genus Geraniumannuals and peren- nials (some woody based) native mainly to the Northern Hemisphere, bearing symmetrical.

    The book also shows you how to use scented geraniums to flavor baked goods and make lovely topiaries, dried arrangements, and potpourri.
