Geranium Rozanne, commonly known as ‘Cranesbill’ and holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, is a popular perennial flowering plant known for its vibrant lavender blue flowers and long blooming period. Originally from the Balkans and introduced to the United Kingdom in the late 1990s, Geranium Rozanne has quickly become a favourite among gardeners and landscapers. This hardy plant is a hybrid of the species Geranium Himalayense and Geranium Wallichianum and is prized for its attractive foliage and abundant flowers.
This variety of Geranium grows well in a range of soils, but prefers moist, well-draining, fertile soil with a neutral pH. It can tolerate a wide range of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade, but will produce the most flowers in full sun. This plant is also drought-tolerant once established, making it an ideal choice for gardeners in drought-prone areas.
When caring for this Geranium, it is important to keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. In the Winter months, it is best to reduce watering to prevent damage to the roots. This plant benefits from regular pruning to encourage bushy growth and to remove any spent flowers. It can also be deadheaded to extend the blooming period.
Geranium Rozanne is a low-maintenance plant that is perfect for gardeners of all skill levels. Whether you are planting in a garden bed or using it in a container, this plant is sure to make a stunning addition to any outdoor space. With its attractive foliage, abundant flowers, and long blooming period, Geranium Rozanne is a must-have for any garden enthusiast!
