Geranium (Cranesbill) Geraniums were once considered the "must have" plant for English gardens and with over 400 species it wasn't long before cultivars developed popularity with gardeners world wide. Buyers beware however as perennial geraniums are not related to annual geraniums which are actually in the genus Pelargonium. A true geranium is a cold hardy perennial that will prove to be long-lived and add years of beauty and graceful charm to any garden.

2008: 'Rozanne' Geranium Geraniums are one of my favorite shade plants. At least, here in Utah where I live, shade in the afternoon is best for them although I have a few in full sun but the ones in shade bloom longer and get bigger overall. This one is blue and has a white "eye". I love them all.
