Elke

It seems that I am slow going to loose my Elkes (Geranium sanguineum ‘Elke’). After the winter I only have one plant left.

To be honest I am not quite sure if I buy more. I like the color Elke has but it is not doing so well in the summer cottage.

In the end there are so many flowers to choose from so you can actually be a bit picky and select the ones you like the most.

Put let’s see how the last Elke does. It might be with me many more years. You never know.

Elke

The Elkes (Geranium sanguineum ‘Elke’) have been blooming all summer.

I like the bright color of the blooms which stand out nicely. They are though a bit sensitive when it comes to rain but new blooms emerge quickly to replace the damaged ones.

The variety seems to be very suitable for the area and does not require much attention. Some of the plants have survived in a sandy soil without any additional nutrients or care.
