Cranesbill, or hardy geraniums, are perennial border plants with saucer-shaped flowers in shades of pink, purple and blue. They're easy to grow, thrive in shade and flower for months. Geraniums are popular in cottage garden schemes and offer a long season of pollen and nectar for a number of pollinators, particularly bees.

Geranium 'Rozanne' bears striking deep purple flowers in contrast with mid-green foliage, for months on end. It's perfect for using as ground cover at the front of borders. Easy to grow, Geranium 'Rozanne' is tolerant of most conditions except waterlogged soil. Suitable for sun or shade. Deadhead spent blooms regularly to prolong flowering.
