Geranium, Calliope Dark Red is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this plant! Blooms continuously! Had half dozen blooms today (10/19) and three or four on their way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Plant Showed up in good shape. Doing ok in full intense sun. Not quite as quick to regrow flowers as my other geraniums, not getting as large as I expected even with regular feedings. Deep Red color which is what I was looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best geraniums I have had We had this geranium in 3 window boxes at our family cottage in Michigan. I have never had so many compliments on the boxes as they were overflowing flowing with gorgeous red blooms all season. I am planning on doing these again this year at the cottage and at my home. They are showstoppers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Geranium, Calliope Dark Red The plants arrived in great condition and have grown well. The plants have large dark red blooms that last for several days. The foliage is a beautiful dark green. Easy to maintain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prettiest & easy to care for Geranium Completely satisfied with the plants & the service from Burpee. They are all blooming beautiful and are easy to care for. Highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Have had plants for over a month- no blooms/growth I'm upset that I paid so much for these and the peppermint stripe and no real growth or setting of blooms has occurred. They are in Miracle Grow potting soil and get 6-8 hours of direct sun a day. No adverse conditions at all. They were a gift for my mother's birthday, she was disappointed. They aren't brown or dying, just nothing is happening. I had to buy local replacements.
