The Elkes (Geranium sanguineum ‘Elke’) are doing fine. They made it through the winter and have been blooming the whole summer.

Bought few more to the new flowerbed I have been building to have some reliable bloomers in it.

Their flowers are a bit delicate when it comes to rain and wind but new ones emerge often so it is not a big problem.

This is the first time I have planted bloody geraniums and they seem to do well.

Elkes’ blooms are larger than I expected and they seem to do OK even in the wet spot I have put them.

Must buy other colors next year. This flower might be a perfect choice for the summer cottage.
