Geranium ‘Rozanne’ is an easy to flower Geranium which is tough in the ground. It grows with vigour though is never invasive and it will cope with a bit of neglect. The foliage forms a neat mound of mid green leaves, that turn bronze-red in autumn before going to ground to re-emerge invigorated for the next season. In fact it gets better year after year.
The flowers of Geranium ‘Rozanne’ adorn the plant from spring, usually right up to frost. Cut back after the first flush (around mid summer) and add some fertiliser to encourage a more prolific ‘second round’ of blooms and a more bushy habit.
