Geranium Rozanne is a dependable flowering deciduous perennial, perfect for a pot, a border or ground cover. Easy to grow, hardy and long-flowering, this sprawling geranium will add a splash of beautiful blue to your garden.
A profusion of large shallow saucer-shaped flowers in a beautiful violet blue arrive in summer. 5cm across, each deep blue flower is enhanced by a white centre, and radiating pinky-purple veins. Flowering from June to October it will fill any planting scheme with a wash of pretty blue blooms for months on end.
The gorgeous dense foliage is made up of green marbled, rounded and deeply divided leaves. Look out for the distinctive beak-like seed-pods which elongate after pollination, give geraniums the common name Crane’s Bill.
Geranium Rozanne prefers any fertile soil (although do keep it away from waterlogged areas) and will happily grow in full sun or partial shade. Each autumn it dies back to below ground level, and fresh foliage will appear in spring when the weather warms.
A vigorous grower, Geranium Rozanne is a great option for naturalised planting schemes, and it is a really good plant for a city garden, a patio, woodland planting or formal border, in fact it’s happy pretty much anywhere.
Geranium Rozanne is a hybrid of G. wallichianum and G. himalayense.
