Native to South Africa, geranium takes its name from the Greek geranos, which means crane, a reference to the crane-beak shape of its fruit. It is a branching shrub with downy, light-green, aromatic foliage. The inflorescence is most often pink and each flower consists of a pair of upper petals, veined with ruby red, and three lower petals.
In the mid-19th century, the Damask rose became scarce and the price of its essential oil increased accordingly. Perfumers therefore set off in search of new plants that had the scent of roses. In 1819, the geranium joined the perfumer’s organ.

Geranium rosat is a sterile male plant that is replanted each year using cuttings. The Egyptians replant it annually in November in mixed cropping in their garlic fields. The garlic is harvested between March and April and the geranium is harvested between June and July. The roots of the geranium plants are then unearthed so that the following crop can be planted – basil, which is harvested in October.
