Also called Countess of Scarborough Geranium, this hybrid was introduced in England before 1820. At least eight species of sweet-scented geraniums were introduced from southern Africa between 1770 and 1820. Jean Skipwith of Prestwould in Mecklenburg County, Virginia, listed “rose geranium” among her houseplants in papers that have been dated between 1785 and 1805. Dozens of hybrids and cultivars were available by the mid-19th century. Known collectively as “Rose Geraniums,” they became very popular bedding and parlor plants in the late Victorian Period.
