Flopping perennial geranium

Hi! I live in zone 5. I have had a "Johnson's Blue" geranium for several years in a sunny exposure. It blooms beautifully, but always seems to flop over in the middle exposing the crown of the plant rather than staying in a nice rounded mound. What should I be doing to avoid this?

Well sadly, Johnson's Blue does this naturally. It's one of this varieties big weak points. There's nothing you can do about it really.
