Crane's Bill

Geranium 'Johnson's Blue'

Soft mounds of foliage with saucer-shaped blue flowers. Foliage changes colors in the fall.

The Border selections of Cranesbill Geranium are valuable fillers for colour in early to mid summer. This variety forms a mound of bold green foliage, bearing large cup-shaped bright-blue flowers. Plants need to be cut back hard after blooming to encourage fresh new foliage and to tidy up the inevitable post-blooming floppiness. Easily divided in spring or fall. Though this has long been the ?standard? or classic blue-flowered Cranesbill selection, newer hybrids such as ?Rozanne? are not only less floppy in habit but also longer blooming.
