August 2006 Plant Profile: Geranium ‘Rozanne’

One of the most exciting of hardy geraniums to be introduced in the last decade, Geranium ‘Rozanne’ has many of the qualities a great perennial plant should have. A single specimen can act as a billowy groundcover of maple-like, light green foliage smothered with two inch pale blue flowers with a lavender center all throughout the summer months. From our Blooms of Bressingham trials, I took a division in early spring and planted it close to the dry river rocks in Bed 6 where the soothing color represents a stream of cool running water. Readily available in nurseries and a Great Plant Pick!
