    Winner of the RHS Plant of the Centenary at Chelsea Flower Show in 2013

    Each lavender-blue, saucer-shaped flower grows up to 5cm across, and has a white eye with purple veining. A spreading form, it looks wonderful in naturalised planting schemes, where it provides fast-growing ground cover, and will flower from early summer to mid-autumn.

  • Garden care: In midsummer rejuvenate plants that are beginning to look jaded, by removing old flowered stems and leaves. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.

    Geranium Rozanne copes very well with our exposed garden in the Pennines and gives a long season of colour.

      The plant quickly established when repotted immediately after receipt. Lovely blue flowers throughout the summer until November, 2016. Looking forward to seeing it next summer. Will probably buy another.

        Geraniums are a must for sunny borders. I believe these very pretty flowers spread over time. They flowered well into November.

            Comments about Geranium Rozanne ('Gerwat') (PBR):

            Extremely versatile, reliable plant. I've grown Geranium Rozanne since it first appeared on the market and now have several clumps in various areas of my garden: herbaceous borders and even trailing down a dry stone wall. It's most prolific in part shade and where the soil is slightly damp. Once trimmed, after its first flush, the regrowth often flowers for many months. It sprawls but I like that. My recent purchase from Crocus was a birthday gift for a friend who had admired it several times in my garden.

                    Comments about Crocus Geranium Rozanne ('Gerwat') (PBR):

                    I currently have three of these spread around different parts of my garden. I have come back today to order more.

                    At the moment my plants are in the earth, but I also think this little plant would be terrific in a planter - time will tell.

                    One of the greatest things for me, is that this is not understimated in its praise. I planted my plants early last year, they were still in full bloom into November, indeed, some of the last colour in my garden - I've fallen in love with this plant. I see it as a good all round plant. You are in for a treat if you buy these - it is no wonder it has an award of the centenery.

                      Plant advice for 2 new beds please

                      Hello, I need some help to decide which plants to put into two new areas please:- 1: A semi-circle flash bed at the front of the house, size approx 2m x 0.80m and 0.80m deep. I thought about the 3 following options for a small tree/bush in the middle:- a) Magnolia soulangeana, but I was worried about the size that it could grow to and possible problems with roots etc . Will it stay small if the size of the container is used to restrict it? b) Witch Hazel (Hamamelis intermediana 'Diane'). Will it spread too much? I think this is very pretty. c) Corylus avellana 'contorta' Then I also need to think about ground cover plants to help suppress weeds. I am only interested in fully hardy, easy to look after plants, could be with some flowers or coloured leaves. 2:- A thin path between neighbours (approx 2m x 0.40). My idea is to plant bamboo. I would love a modern thin run of bamboo with ground cover. My worry is which bamboos to use. I love the yellow, like Phyllostychys aureocaulis (Golden Grove) but not sure if it is strong enough as it could be exposed to some wind. I bought from you a couple of years ago the Phyllostychys aureosulcata 'Spectabilis' which I planted in pots but it died this year. I see on your website some other bamboos but I don't like them as much as their canes seems less exposed and have a lot more foliage. But possibly these would be a better alternative... ...? For the ground cover I as thinking of Ophiopogen nigrescen. Do you think these plants will be suitable, or have you any other suggestions? Thank you for your help, Galia

                    • Q:

                      Is it still ok to be cutting back herbaceous perennials, Lavender and Caryopteris late in the year?

                      Dear Crocus, I didn't have time to cut back to ground level all my herbaceous perennial plants and some shrubs in the autumn, due to work and family commitments. It's difficult to get out into the garden just now as I only have a little time at the weekend. Would it be too late for me to cut everything back still between now in December and the end of February e.g hardy Geraniums, Hostas,etc. and shrubs like Lavenders and Caryopteris? I really would appreciate your advice. Many thanks Pamela

                    How to get more flowers

                    Many flowering plants can be encouraged to produce better and longer-lasting displays with the minimum of effort. A plant produces flowers in order to reproduce and ensure the survival of the species. Once a plant has flowered and fertilisation has taken

                    Deadheading will prevent them setting seed and so use their energy producing a further flush of blooms later on. Plants that respond well to deadheading include annuals such as Ageratum, Alyssum, Antirrhinum, Calendula, Centaurea, Cosmos, Dahlia, foxglove
