We grow 20 varieties of hardy geraniums, and Johnsons Blue is known to
do just this.  Flop.  Yes, by all means, shear it down hard, and it will
come back within 2-3 weeks with a nice flush of leaves, and perhaps a
flower or two.
Geranium himalayense is very, very similar, but stays tight after
blooming.  You'd have to be a geranium collector to tell the difference
between the two.
