Geranium Rozanne®

Cranesbill

Our most popular Geranium. Renowned for its extremely long, all-season bloom, this vigorous perennial forms a broadly spreading mound of deep green, dissected foliage. Large, violet blue flowers with a lighter eye are produced prolifically until frost. Nice orange-red fall color. Great in landscapes and hanging baskets.

Grower Information

For the best spring flowering display at retail, plant Geranium plugs in late summer. For later season sales, plant our vernalized plugs in spring or summer. Hardier varieties can be grown outdoors and easily overwintered in cold frames. Keep plants cool in late winter to avoid premature flowering.
