Geranium Rozanne

This pic is of 3 geranium rozanne that I planted spring 2017. Last year they didn't do too much but this year they are romping away and are beautiful but covering my hebe's. I think the space is too small for all 3  so wondering when would be the best time to move 2 . Ideally I would like to move them in spring as I was told that they can flower until november and I couldn't bear to cut them back when still in flower. Also do you think rozanne would be happy growing beneath cherry tree in semi shade...

    I have Rozanne in semi shade but she doesn't come close to yours for flowers

    I have one growing in a raised bed which is also a sun-trap and is smothered like @harmony 's but never gets any additional water @nutcutlet so I'd have to assume Rozanne is one which does better in those conditions.

    My rozanne is now in semi shade and she gets a bit leggy.  Probably ought to chop her early but always forget!

    Hardy geraniums are always a good shout for dry shade are they not?

    I'd suspect it'd be fine under the tree once established.

    some are good in shade, some less so

    One of mine has got buried under a large dahlia. Actually,it was me that put the dahlia too close😕A GR flower stem has popped its head up above it. I also have a VB that has worked it's way through a clematis and must be pushing 8ft tall.

    That's lovely Harmony. I have several, including a new one this year which I've put under a magnolia tree. It will be interesting to see how it copes with partial shade compared to the others in full sun.

    I moved my Rozanne from a shady spot to a sunnier bed ... the improvement was astonishing 😊
