Geranium Calliope 'Dark Red'
Calliope likes lots of sun and is both heat and drought tolerant. Geraniums don’t like “soggy feet,” so plant Calliope in well-draining soil and water when soil is dry to the touch. Feed twice a month with liquid fertilizer and for the best flower display, deadhead spent blooms as needed.
