One of the most popular blue-flowered geraniums, 'Johnson's Blue' forms dense, spreading mounds of neatly cut leaves, topped with abundant clusters of large, saucer-shaped, sky blue flowers, 2 in. wide (5 cm), from late spring to midsummer. Compact, its foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season and makes it useful as a low ground cover. Turning showy red and gold in fall, it creates a pretty contrast.
