This fragrant plant is most famous as a mosquito repellant, though its fern-like leaves and delicate sprawl make them an endearing houseplant all year round. A lover of bright spaces, the citronella plant is also fairly drought tolerant. It's capable of growing between 2 and 4 feet with enough time and care!
