Re: weather/gardening

Hello Christine,
    It is not all hype on this one.... Geranium Rozanne is one of the best
ones to come along in some time. Already quite popular. I have had it for
two years in my garden. It is a good grower and stands up to heat and
drought, along with some shade. Blooms like crazy. The begin a nice blue for
me, go over to purple-blue with age. Nice contrasting eye. Blooms are not
only plentiful they are large and showy over cut foliage. Best bloom is in
late summer into fall. Mine was in full bloom when our hard cold weather
hit. Took a couple of freezes before the plant shut down.
    I say go for it if you have room for another geranium.
