Best blue or purple geranium?

luxrosaOctober 20, 2009

I'm looking for a few blue and purple geraniums to plant with Old Garden Roses. I'm particularly interested in geraniums with:

-pretty foliage

-long blooming season or good repeat bloom.

- a blue or purple with no red. I bought a selection of a blue geranium and disliked its' red staining in hot weather.

I live near San Francisco, California where frost is not a problem.

Thanks so much,

Maybe you could get some suggestions from this website. It is a geranium nursery in Marin County, CA

I am in the Santa Cruz area, very similar climate to SF. By far my best performing blue/purple Geranium is 'Rozanne', she makes a nice foliage clump about 1' tall and 18" wide in spring and is blooming from May - Nov. She dies to the ground in winter most years, but comes back very strong. I have her planted beneath 'Mary Rose' a David Austin rose. She gets sun all day. I plan to divide mine this year so I can have more than one.

Thanks for the info. Rozanne sounds nearly perfect.
