SACRAMENTO, California, June 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show celebrated its 100th birthday in 2013. To mark the occasion, they asked the public to vote for their Plant of the Centenary.
And the winner is...
The plant which came out on top was a Hardy Geranium called Rozanne®. This powerhouse of a perennial won its stripes through offering a continuous stream of white-centred violet-blue flowers over an exceptionally long blooming period - late spring right through till first hard autumn frosts - and robust constitution that makes it as foolproof as a Geranium can be. It's also more versatile than most people would expect, being as good trailing alone out of a hanging basket or patio containiner as it is in the mixed border or even in large-scale landscape plantings. Its densely sprawling nature keeps weeds at bay while its flowers give bees the nectar the need. What's not to like?
These credentials had already earned Rozanne® the highly regarded RHS Award of Garden Merit and much sought-after (USA) Perennial Plant Association's Perennial Plant of the Year (2008).
So where does a plant like this come from? How can we all get to see these claims in action? And what if we want to have a go at breeding plants ourselves? The answers to these questions weave into a neat little circle.
