Buy Geranium wallichianum 'Rise and Shine' (PBR) geranium: Intense blue for a long period

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast growing
  • Flowering period: June to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of white-eyed cobalt blue flowers, each laced with magenta-pink veins, top lush mounds of much-divided foliage from early summer until the first frosts. As the flowers age, they take on a rich pinkish hue, adding further interest throughout the season. Its low, spreading habit makes it ideal for the front of the border, or cascading over the edges of a pot.

  • Garden care: Carefully weed by hand as hoeing can break rhizomes, which are very close to the surface. Lift and divide large colonies in spring.

Really pretty flowers

Found this geranium a bit difficult to get established but finally flowered in the summer and autumn. Can't seem to find it again this year and that shouldn't happen as it's a perennial but I'll wait to see what happens.

A healthy plant, but not many flowers compared to other geraniums eg Roxanne/ Johnson's blue

Fabulous addition to a shady corner

I planted three of these in a shady corner of a south coastal garden in the spring and they produced the most amazing display of gorgeous blue flowers (slightly pinker than Rozanne) all summer and well in to November; the leaves are also very attractive. A stunning addition.

Looking for plants to grow well in pots or soil next to grave. Not able to visit daily for watering but could manage weekly visit. Thank you

Hello, This is tricky, as even the most resilient plants will need watering regularly for the first year or so after planting. If you really want to try something, then you could opt for a geranium like this one in a partially shaded spot, or an Erigeron if the grave gets lots of sun - please click on the following link to go straight to it. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/erigeron-karvinskianus/classid.2751/

Non stop geranium flower power!

One of the major players in our gardens is the hardy geranium with its gaping, saucer-shaped flowers heavily veined in order to guide the thirsty bee to the vital nectar and pollen. There are varieties galore and it’s quite possible to have hardy geraniu

Low maintenance plants for a sunny garden
