Hardy geranium help

i have 2 hardy geraniums in my garden. They are starting to look a bit leggy, but still lots of flowers. Should I do anything to them? If so what? 
Also does anyone know which ones they are?

    When mine get to that stage*, l cut them almost back (about 2 inches or so) to the ground and give them a good drink of water and some liquid feed such as tomato food.  They reshoot again very quickly and may well flower again. I am not sure,but l have a feeling Rozanne may be treated differently .
    Bit of info here
    * Edited to add, l didn't phrase that very well. I meant when they get leggy and the flowers have run out of steam. It always amazes me how quickly a new flush of leaves appear.

    ...the top one is Geranium 'Patricia'.. and blue one is Geranium 'Orion'...

    I would leave them as they're in full flush... wait until all the flowers are over, then cut them back to ground level... 'Patricia' should repeat flower in the autumn... 'Orion'.. not usually..

    ...correction,.. actually I think you do get some later flowers on it too... going from memory..

    We never cut back until flowers have almost gone then they will re-flower in the autumn
