Geranium ‘Rozanne’ is an exceptional, unique, and unsurpassed geranium selection. There are not enough superlatives to describe this fabulous perennial. Robust and vigorous, with one of the longest flowering periods of all hardy geraniums and rare blue-colored flowers of great decorative beauty, it is an ideal element of the garden, patio, or balcony.

  • Reliable and fully hardy, ‘Rozanne’ comes back year after year, bigger and even better than the previous spring.
  • A prolific bloomer, it continuously produces a profusion of large violet-blue flowers with attractive purple-violet veins and small white centers for months of color from late spring to the first frost.
  • Clump-forming, ‘Rozanne’ reaches 20 in. in height (50 cm) and spreads 2 ft. wide (60 cm). This sturdy performer is not only easy to grow, but it also requires very little maintenance and is trouble-free.
  • Worldwide acclaimed, it is the recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society (2006) and the winner of the Plant of Year award (2008). It has also been voted one of the top ten best Plants of the Centenary (RHS Chelsea Flower Show).
  • Performs best in full sun with some afternoon protection in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Exceptionally heat-resistant! Though it prefers moist, well-drained soil, it will also tolerate periods of drought once established. Deer and rabbit resistant.
  • A perfect border plant, it is a spectacular addition to herbaceous borders, containers, or hanging baskets and is an excellent choice as a ground cover or in mass plantings, where it provides excellent color contrast.
