If it is hardy geranium, then no, you will not need to do anything with them. If it is pelargonium (the tender perennial that is often referred to as geranium), then if you are in a zone where the plant survives year round, it will start to get leggy and woody after awhile and some pruning will help to keep it low growing and green.
