One of the reasons people are so drawn to Geranium Rozanne in their perennial gardening adventures is for her long and vigorous flowering season. From the fresh blooms of spring right up until the first hard frost, the cranesbill bursts forth with vivid purple flowers, accented in the middle with a pop of white.
The hardy nature of Geranium Rozanne made her an easy choice for Plant of the Centenary, and as low maintenance as she is, she makes the perfect accent. Requiring little care beyond regular watering, Rozanne can be planted in a variety of settings and vessels, and then simply enjoyed for the striking beauty she is. Here are a few ways to use Geranium Rozanne to decorate your life:
Line your walkways
Use Rozanne’s dramatic bluish-purple flowers to line your garden walkways. Spilling gently over the footpath border with wandering green tendrils, she gives the illusion of a soft edge to a concrete or stone laid perimeter.
Hang Rozanne in a basket
Rozanne presents beautifully in a hanging basket. Her dark green, slightly marbled foliage will spill out of the basket and over the sides, her flowers popping up in a blossoming sea of purple. Hang several baskets on your patio or around your garden for pops of color that are sure to draw the eye.
Plant Geranium Rozanne in your window box, then open your windows and let her bright cheerful colours paint your home with visions of spring. Bring her vivid violet hues out of the garden and into your window, and put her beauty on display up close and personal.
Get creative with containers
Think outside of traditional terracotta or ceramic pots and recycle items from around your home to plant Geranium Rozanne in. Many containers, such as old bathtubs and sinks, naturally come equipped with holes for drainage, but even those that don’t can easily be adapted using a cordless drill. Decorating your patio or garden area with upcycled potting containers is a low-cost way to showcase Rozanne’s beauty in a way that truly fits your unique living space and style.
So few plants possess Rozanne’s unique ability to bloom and thrive with such an extended period of time and reappear each year with the same hardiness. Take advantage of her bright and reliable nature, and decorate your garden and home with Geranium Rozanne today.
