Product Description

New for 2021, ‘Azure Skies’ is a spectacular hardy perennial Geranium one of the larger varieties and will look stunning in your garden.

The beautiful, finely cut foliage gives rise to masses of bright azure blue double flowers from May all way through to September. The blooms have delightful, ruffled petals and are set off beautifully by the lush green of the leaves. Recommended by the RHS as a 'Plant for Pollinators' the stunning summer flowers are a favourite with butterflies and bees.

A longstanding cottage garden favourite, hardy Geraniums will grow happily in sunshine or shade, and are perfect for bringing vibrant colour to darker parts of your garden, brightening up beds and borders whenever you plant them, and with foliage that takes on fiery shades in the autumn, they provide interest for much of the year.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Remove faded flowers and leaves at the base or shear the tops of the plants back to new growth in order to stimulate blooming and freshen the foliage.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Geranium

  • Before planting, prepare the soil by digging over and removing any weeds. Incorporate some well-rotted manure to enrich the soil if necessary.
  • Knock the plant from its container. Look at the roots – if they are circling around the compost, it is best to tease them out. To do this, push your fingers into the root ball along the bottom edge and pull. Do this in a couple of places. This should encourage the roots to spread into the surrounding soil.
  • Next use a trowel or spade to create a hole just deep and wide enough to set in the root ball.
    The aim is to bury just the roots, leaving the bases of the stems (when in growth in summer) or the shoots (in spring) above ground.
  • Firm back around the soil, using your hand for small clumps and your heel on larger areas.
  • Water in well to settle the soil and prevent desiccation.

Aftercare Advice

  • Prefers compost-enriched soil that stays moist. If planting straight out, keep well-watered until established.
    Geraniums are herbaceous perennials and are easy to grow and fuss free.
  • They need minimal maintenance and are also generally pest and disease resistant.
  • Once established, they're drought tolerant and even slugs, snails and rabbits leave them alone!

Pruning

  • A haircut with shears after flowering is all the pruning that is required.
  • Doesn’t normally need dividing but plants can be split in spring or autumn if needed.
