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 himalayense 'Birch Double'

A mass of double purple-pink blooms stand above the delicately serrated foliage which turns to shades of burnt red and orange in autumn. Geranium himalayense 'Birch Double' will quickly blend with other herbaceous perennials to create colourful groundcover and looks equally attractive in herbaceous borders and shady woodland gardens. Height: 25cm (10?). Spread: 60cm (24?). 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!"
