General Culture:
Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Prefers moist, organic soils. Best grown in full sun with some afternoon protection. ROZANNE has exceptional heat tolerance, and generally will bloom throughout the summer. If flowering stops and/or plant foliage depreciates in the heat of the summer, plants may be cut or sheared back to rejuvenate, shape and/or encourage additional bloom. Side stems may be removed or trimmed at any time to control spread.
Noteworthy Characteristics:
ROZANNE is a clump-forming geranium that typically grows in a mound to 20 tall by 24 wide. It is noted for its almost non-stop flowering throughout the growing season. Large, 5-petaled, violet-blue flowers (to 2.5 diameter) with purple-violet veins and small white centers bloom profusely from late spring to early summer. Deeply cut, deep green foliage.
Problems:
No serious insect or disease problems.
Uses:
Borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens. Specimen, group or mass. Also effective in patio planters and window boxes.
