Geraniums & pelargoniums are split into two groups: pelargoniums are half-hardy, whereas other types of geranium are hardy. This exciting range includes upright, trailing, climbing, ivy-leaf, 'balcon', rosebud, dwarf varieties and more. Look out for the eye-catching tulip-flowered pelargoniums.
Geranium 'Gerwat', Hardy Geranium, Cranesbill
A celebrated Cranesbill producing masses of saucer shaped, violet-blue blooms with dainty white centres. Being a sterile hybrid, Geranium 'Rozanne' flowers repeatedly throughout the summer and won’t self-seed like other Geraniums. This hardy perennial makes excellent ground cover through the front of informal borders or spilling from containers. As summer ends the loose mounds of foliage colour to reddish brown and fiery orange for an extended display into autumn. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 60cm (24").
Michael Perry comment
"I'm not surprised at all that 'Rozanne' was voted 'Plant of the Centenary'! Geranium 'Rozanne' is the king of the Hardy Geranium world, and now the king of all plants in the UK. Tough, long-lasting, bullet-proof plants are totally smothered in azure-blue flowers from June to November, that's 6 months of colour!"

Geranium 'Best Red' F1 Hybrid
This exceptional variety, Geranium F1 'Best Red' outperformed all others in our trials. The uniform, well branched plants become smothered in large, shapely scarlet flowers that retain their form, without shattering as they fade. These vigorous pelargonium plants are guaranteed to create a top performance in beds, borders and containers. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 35cm (14").
Although technically perennial, Pelargoniums are only half hardy and therefore normally treated as annuals in the UK. However, with care, they may be overwintered in a frost free greenhouse. More info
