Johnson's Blue Geranium's

Now you might be thinking that these don't look at all like geranium's - but they are, and they ain't. Their genus is indeed Geranium - unlike the zonal geraniums that you are likely familiar with (don't worry there is still some room for them in the garden later), however, I do not believe that these are related to zonal or ivy leafed geraniums, which are from South African - where they grown all year long into shrubs. These are most closely related to bricknell's cranesbill (and are often called crane's bill geraniums.) Why are they great? They do just fine in the shade, flower for a long period, grow back bigger and better every year and are just plain pretty.

Nuff said.
