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 'Blue Sybil'
Pelargonium, Rosebud GeraniumThe full, rounded buds of Rosebud Geranium 'Blue Sybil' resemble dainty roses when they first break open, then cluster together to form a pretty posy. This vigorous, trailing variety has the exceptional garden performance of other ivy-leaf geraniums, but their unique flower form truly sets them apart. With regular deadheading, they will spill from windowboxes, containers, and hanging baskets, blooming profusely throughout the summer. Trails to: 45cm (18?).
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
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!"
