I’ve grown tons of varieties of hardy geraniums over the years – some really terrific ones, but like an app, Geranium Rozanne just does something more for me in the landscape that no other geranium does equally as well.
Meandering Spirit – Spreading clumps fill in fast and weave here and there but never overly ambitious or that would require extra work on my part. I like to plant it where it can meander around spiked or small shrubs shrubs (I’m going to try it beneath Barberry Gold Pillar this year )
Carefree Color – Five-petaled saucer-shape blue flowers boast blue-lavender blooms for over 12 weeks and it doesn’t need to be deadheaded to continue blooming! Rozanne geranium defies the early fall frost here in Zone 5 and just keeps blooming – something you don’t see in most hardy geraniums. The foliage takes on a reddish tinge in the fall, so there is even something more to enjoy!
Heat Tolerance – This award winning sun perennial groundcover is HIGHLY Heat Tolerant – not something hardy geraniums are known for.
What it Loves – Rozanne Geranium thrives in a moist, moderately fertile, well drained soil in full sun to light shade.
Garden Staple – Rozanne Geranium works so well in lots of settings. It combines beautifully with another colorful, carefree and heat tolerant groundcover – Coreopsis Creme Brule! This groundcover is to perennial gardening like khaki
pants & blue denim are to weekend summer wear.
Flower power, ease of growing, fast growing habit and tons of combination possibilities make Geranium Rozanne my all-time favorite sun loving perennial groundcover. Its’ like having a great app!
