Hardy geraniums are classic rose companions. They are great at insinuating themselves among the bare legs of roses, helping to reinforce the beauty of their romantic blooms and prevent diseases. Here, the fragrant, fully double blossoms of English Rose 'Gertrude Jekyll', bred by David Austin, agreeably combine their pure rose-pink color and cup-shaped form with one of the most popular violet-blue flowering geranium, 'Brookside' for a long-lasting and delightfully fragrant floral display.
Both plants have won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society. Enjoy!
