Hardy Geranium Johnson’s Blue, not to be mistaken with the tender Pelargoniums which we have all referred to as Geraniums for decades.
The true Geranium a perennial which thrives in the North east climate is a flowering plant which should grace every mixed border. Hundreds of named varieties available in every shade of colour except yellow. One very popular and dare I say common Geranium is Johnson’s Blue, the deep lavender-blue flowers appear in May/June and if after flowering the dead blooms and foliage are cut back, the plant will become rejuvenated and most likely give a second flush of flowers in August. This Geranium goes very well with Alchemilla Mollis. The RHS have deservedly given it their prestigious award of garden merit.
