Plant Complimentary Colours With Geranium Rozanne

Rozanne’s petals are mostly a purple colour, so planting yellow flowers with your cranesbill will create a vibrant pop that draws attention. Complimentary colours really stand out, and using this method to help design your garden will ensure that Rozanne’s vibrant purple flowers really get noticed against the contrasting yellow.

Yellow flowers will enhance concentration and are even thought to increase metabolism. A great place for the purple/yellow combination would be in a window box outside your office!

Plant Analogous Colours With Rozanne

On the flip side of the colour wheel, shades that are similar to each other are called analogous colours. Analogous colours to the romantic purple of Geranium Rozanne are blues and reds. Planting with these colours could be as bold as using a saturated red and blue, or as subtle as shades of lavender, chartreuse, and magenta.

Analogous colour schemes in traditional or container gardening creates a soothing, natural, and serene environment. Shades closer to the blue end of the spectrum promote peace and tranquility, and stimulate productivity. If you plant flowers that are more closely related to red, it can stimulate the nervous system and encourage the flow of energy.

Using clever combinations of colour in your garden and container potting design will bring a whole new level of interest to Geranium Rozanne. You can influence mood, create feelings, and enhance an environment to craft just the right mood.
