General Description: Geraniums comes in all colours and types and this is why it is difficult when naming species to be accurate. They are all pelargoniums, but the specific name tends to get lost as farmers grow the ones that produce the best foliage and the higher yield of oil. Bourbon geranium was originally grown on the Bourbon Isles hence the name. It is still grown there but in a limited amount so it is always in short supply. The oil is probably the sweetest of the geranium oils and is in demand for perfumery. Sometimes known as rose-geranium
