Geranium is Plant of the Centenary

Geranium Rozanne ('Gerwat') has been announced the RHS Plant of the Centenary. Thousands of people voted for the Plant of the Centenary from a shortlist of 10 - one for each decade the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has been held - and this beautiful geranium achieved the top spot.

Geranium Rozanne ('Gerwat') was picked as the top plant launched between 1993 - 2002.

The successful plant got your votes on account of its beautiful, violet-blue flowers growing atop mounds of slightly marbled, deep green foliage. Its lengthy flowering period is June to at least September.
