Plants That Repel Mosquitoes

The more time we are spending outside this spring, the more mosquito bites we are getting! I hate spraying chemicals all over my body because I don't want them seeping into my bloodstream. So I set out to find some plants that repel mosquitoes that would also be pretty on my patio.
Here's what I found at my local plant nursery:

Citronella

Rosemary

Lemongrass

Happy gardening!

  1. I'm currently trying to grow rosemary from some springs I clipped off of a mother plant. They haven't rooted yet but I'm crossing my fingers they do. I love the smell of rosemary and put it in everything. I like that it's an added bonus for mosquitoes. Never knew that.

    1. When we moved into this house last August, there were literally NO plants here at all. There were some crepe myrtles and yucca trees, but I've been visiting our local nursery a LOT. :)
