I have transplanted a blue flowering perienial geranium as it is getting cooler here. It looks like it is dead! I added root starter to the soil and watered it plenty at the time. Should I worry, or should I just wait to see if it comes up in the spring? Also, should I trim it back any, or just leave the long branches as is.(although they look dead) thanks for your help!

Your geranium is probably fine...just the top growth died from transplant shock. It may have time to show some new growth this year, but more likely it will be next year. You can go ahead and trim the dead parts back to make it look tidier.
