That is what makes it all quite confusing. I had always thought, and the ASPCA website says, that Pelargonium is the scientific name for geraniums. However, I know that some geraniums such as the scented varieties don't look very much like the common geraniums that we are so familiar with, although they still seem to be from the same family.

One thing to keep in mind though, is that a lot of things that are safe for us can be harmful to dogs or cats or other species.
