If you mean the citronella scented geranium (pelargonium actually), they smell nice and they do keep mosquitoes away from the immediate area. They do like full sun and regular watering. I have one plot 3 by 5 feet that is waist-high, and one big pot, right outside my kitchen door. I like the smell and they do seem to keep the skeeters away from the door. They do spread, so if you don't want it all over, a pot would be advisable.
