My Rozanne is in my front bed between a Ninebark to the house (w) side and Heliopsis Loraine Sunshine to the street (e) side. She faces (s) the driveway which is the approach to the house from the street. Behind her (n) is a dogwood which has over the years stretched to cover more of that bed. The bed used to be all tulips, lilies, peonies and sunny flowers but a few years ago I converted it to a shade garden of toadlilies, hosta, lungworts, and brunnera and such to within about 6 feet of the driveway. That area was still sunny. Since much of Rozanne's beauty would be diminished as it travels into the shady portion, not to mention hogging space better filled by the shade lovers, I prop her backside up with folding fence to face the driveway. This gives her a fuller appearance.

I do have lilies amd Linaria that pop up in front (s)of (through) her ramblings. The main item I was concerned about her rambling over is a lovely little Weigela 'My Monet', that is getting lost in the shuffle. My Monet's coloring is mirrored by that of Ajuga 'Burgundy Glow' planted at the drive's edge. It get's a bit lost in Rozanne's exuberance too. Maybe it is just time to move the Weigela to a better spot.

It has been my experience that Rozanne can be whacked back any
time.... the deer have illustrated that one over and over in my garden. The plant then goes on and does what it does best... rambles. Just does not get
as tall while it does the rambling. Three feet seems to be its limit with
me... transplant some lilies to come up out of the rambling....use her habit
rather than fight it.

Most everyone agrees Geranium ROZANNE is a great plant.  I do like the way
she rambles, but I wonder if she can be made to grow a little more
compactly. Has anyone tried cutting it back early on to see how she reacts?
