CULTIVATION AND PRODUCTION
EXTRACTION AND YIELD
Its long green three-lobed leaves with reddish veins are highly indented and velvety. The buds are pinkish; the small flowers white or purple, with five petals of which two have red striations. Few plants are so widespread and universally admired as geraniums, of which there are about a hundred species, all scented but with very diverse scents, that are a pleasure to harvest leaves and flowers throughout the year. Geraniums are named in the countryside Herb Robert, fourchette du diable or cranesbill. This last name alludes to the shape of its fruit which resembles a tapered beak, thus the scientific names: pelargonium derives from the Greek pelargos (stork) and geranium from geranos (crane). The wild form existed in Antiquity, but it was only cultivated from its arrival in Europe at the end of the 17th century. It was first implanted in Bourbon island, nowadays Reunion island. Geranium was used in the past as a medicinal plant to treat ophthalmia, excessive milk production, swelling of the throat due to tonsil inflammation and the violent sore throat referred to as tonsillitis. Scented geraniums are found in some famous perfumes: "Jazz" by Yves Saint Laurent, "Brut" by Fabergé, "Caleche" by Hermès and "Egoiste" by Chanel.
