    Rozanne is a hardy blue geranium that blooms from July until the first frost.

WHAT: Geranium Rozanne is a brilliant blue-violet hardy geranium that was found growing in a British garden in 1990. Today it is one of the more popular garden selections.
Its color pops out of containers, border plantings and rockeries, and its blooms are almost nonstop from July until frost.
Sheering this perennial back in midseason helps extend the bloom duration.
In May 2013, members of the British public voted it the "Plant of the Centenary" in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Chelsea Flower Show. Rozanne had already achieved "Plant of the Year" status in the early '90s by the Perennial Plant Association.
SUN OR SHADE: Rozanne loves full sun but can tolerate part shade.
SIZE: 1.5 feet high by 2 feet wide, it's the perfect selection for a front-of-the-border application.
SEE IT: At the WSU Snohomish County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett.
