Product Details

Product Details

This award winner is the longest blooming and most prolific blue-flowered Geranium in our garden. Flowers continue through the heat of midsummer, and the deeply cut leaves remain lovely, on plants that are spreading but not sprawling. PP 12,175.

This is the true Geranium, not to be confused with the annual Pelargonium one sees everywhere in summer. Perennial Geraniums are lovely plants that grow in full sun or partial shade (required in the South and in the warmer areas of western Zones 9 and 10) and need soils with good drainage.

For information on the growing and care of Geranium, click Growing Guide.




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it.

Placed in a new bed and nothing else.

A viewer from MD 7B

I planted beside my newly installed stone walk with no landscaping, in a bed, for something. This is beautiful, I didn't cut back, I just let it go, pretty, durable, crawls well and climbs (a little) tallish, woodsy, sprawling ground covering along the walkway. I did nothing except plant it and have irrigation. Beautiful easy plant. Blooms all summer.

Non-stop blooming is true!

A viewer from Wrentham, MA

This plant has done beautifully in my full sun garden. I have always hoped for, but never really had a plant that lived up to the description of non-stop blooming all summer. This one has done this, and continues to bloom as of Oct. 6!

A lovely little plant

Anne Lynn Jarman from Richmond VA

This plant was a great success for me, out of a few that weren’t as good. Beautiful blue blooms that seem to glow in twilight. Tolerated the appallingly hot summer we have had in Richmond like many other places, I was watering every day, my hydrangeas were the big indicator. But this little plant was a joy. Mixed with some grasses behind it I was very happy, I did dead head and clean it up a couple of times in appreciation but overall definitely worth the money, I might be tempted despite my other experiences to buy more of this I love it so much.

Wonderful while it lasted

A viewer from Nahant, MA

I planted 4 Rozanne geraniums in a rock garden that gets full sun during the day. For three years, they were spectacular performers, with lovely mounding habit that was covered with blooms all summer. Each spring they came back with vigor. Suddenly, after last winter, all four died at the same time. It was a cold winter, but not particularly so. I am at a loss on ways to prevent this from happening. Does the plant have a finite lifespan? Perhaps mulching the roots after cutting back at the end of the season?

White Flower Farm

A viewer from CONNECTICUT

I grow over 50 hardy geranium and this one has to be one of the most difficult. Not sure why the press. Love the blue blooms but gets covered in rust though summer, very sparse, needs oodles of water, and stops blooming here and there. Its parent, Buxtons Blue performs well. I have grown Rozanne in many areas of the garden with the same results. A dud for us.

I am sorry to hear you did not have success with this Cranesbill Geranium. Here in northwest Connecticut it is a stellar performer and it is one of my top ten perennials.

Latin Name Pronunciation:  jer-ay'nee-um  

Geranium is a variable genus of hardy perennials that offers up profusely blooming plants for many situations. The lobed foliage can be as interesting as the flowers, which come in vibrant as well as more subdued shades of true blue, lavender, pinks and white. These plants bear little resemblance to the tender container plants known as Scented Geraniums, Zonal Geraniums, and Martha Washington Geraniums (these belong to the same family, but a different genus, Pelargonium).

Light/Watering: Light shade to full sun in the North and part shade in the South will allow these plants to reach peak performance. Most adapt well to short periods of dry conditions, and all respond to regular watering. Geranium sanguineum and its varieties tolerate drought, especially in cooler climates.

Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Geraniums thrive in average, well-drained soils that are slightly acid to neutral and will benefit from a light application of balanced, granular fertilizer in early spring. Short, dry periods are tolerated by most.

Pests/Diseases: No serious pests or diseases occur in this hardy group.

Companions: Good complements include Catmint (Nepeta), Lilies, Gas Plant (Dictamnus), Delphinium, and Shasta Daisies (Leucanthemum x superba).

Reflowering: With the exception of Bigroot Geranium (G. macrorrhizum) and Bloody Cranesbill (G. sanguineum) varieties, Geraniums have a tendency to sprawl after bloom. Cut plants back hard, to 2-3 inches above soil level, after the first wave of bloom. They will respond with a fresh crop of foliage that looks attractive through the season, and possible sporadic reblooming depending on variety.

Dividing/Transplanting: Cranesbill rarely needs dividing; it is possible with some plants to separate out divisions and replant in spring or early fall. Transplant with care in early spring.

End-of-Season Care: Cut back in autumn after several killing frosts, if desired.

Calendar of Care -- Geranium

Early Spring: Apply a light application of balanced or slow-release fertilizer or side-dress with compost and organic amendments when new growth appears. Supplement nitrogen during periods of prolonged rain to counter natural leaching. Water well if it is unseasonably dry as most prefer an evenly moist soil. Transplant now, if needed, and in some varieties, small pieces with roots may be removed from the edges of the plant for propagation.

Mid-Spring: Taller or sprawling varieties benefit by support with brushy twigs or interwoven, slender stakes.

Late Spring: Water if extended dry periods occur.

Summer: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves. If plants are overtaking their allotted space, cut back to three inches; the new foliage will look lovely for the rest of the season.

Fall: Cut foliage back to soil level. After the ground is frozen, mulch to protect plants from heaving out of the soil in winter.
