Citronella Plants
Q.

Winter protection

Zone Tryon Oklahoma | SandraC added on November 5, 2017 | Answered

I have three mosquito plants (citronella) and I am worried that the winter will kill them. Should I keep them in the house all winter or can they be left outside on the patio as long as it is not freezing out?

These are pretty sensitive to the cold. You can grow them as indoor plants relatively easily. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/scented-geranium/mosquito-citronella-geranium-plant.htm
