Botanical Name

GERANIUM 'Rozanne' PP12175

Plant Common Name

Rozanne Geranium

General Description

The vigorous and beautiful ‘Rozanne’ was bred by Gomer Waterer and Rozanne Waterer in Kilve, Bridgewater, Somerset, England and introduced by Blooms of Bressingham. It is a cross between Geranium wallichianum ‘Buxtons Variety’ and Geranium himalayense.

This exceptional Geranium is one of the best of all the everblooming cranesbills. It maintains a low, rambling habit and has medium green, palmate leaves that are deeply divided. From late spring to fall, it produces lovely violet-blue flowers with white centers and violet-purple veins. These are followed by dry fruits that are shaped like bird's beaks. The seeds within are rarely viable, so it does not self-sow freely.

Full sun and average garden soil with even moisture are suitable for this hardy geranium. It is even tolerant of alkaline and clay soils. This is one of the few geraniums that can take the heat when summers heat up. It will even tolerate brief periods of drought. Mixed perennial borders and cottage gardens are perfect for this pretty garden flower. It also looks becoming spilling over the edges of stone walkways or low retaining walls.
