Description

Look carefully at the flowers on this plant and you'll see that each flower has five petals but the flower is symmetrical. If you happen to be here when it has seed pods you'll see that they have a graceful curved shape, like the curve of a crane's bill. Both of these are features of a cranesbill geranium.

Johnson's Blue geranium flowers prolifically from late spring through till early fall with large violet-blue flowers. After the flowers fade the plant bears the distinctive seed capsule. Johnson's Blue grows to about eighteen inches high and two to three feet width in full or partial sun making it suitable for borders and as a groundcover in sunny areas. It requires regular deep watering during dry periods.
