They bloom all the time, especially in summer heat. The pictures were taken in South China.

I can't tell without a close-up of the flower and leaves what it is. Reminds me of ivy geraniums.

Yes, ivy geraniums. If you click on the photos, you can go to see the original huge sized pictures.

Wow, those are some happy Pelargonium.
Around here I have trouble finding those classic, really trailing cultivars.
Instead they offer a kind of cushion type which grow more compact, no matter how much fertilizer you give them... I noticed that the long ones come in two colors, this bright red and simple pink. The modern cultivars show a wider range of color, like burgundy, dark red or white, some even with double flowers.
Where dis you take this pic, j?

Have a nice weekend, bye, Lin

Lin, I have admired trailing geraniums in pink and red when I travel in Switzerland. To me this is one of the signature flowers of Switzerland. I've copied the look on our contemporary balcony - but it's always hard to find the properly trailing geraniums, and I imagined it would be easy to find them in Switzerland because of how common they are. In any case, I love that look!
