Geranium, Peppermint Twist is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful plants, except mine are pink and white Well, the plants are growing wonderfully and have all summer long, especially after using the seaweed product Burpee offers. However, my plants are pink and white, not candy red and white like shown in this picture (I prefer red over pink). I would have rated them a 5 if it weren't for this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from After mth of sun no growth/blooms- maybe will? I bought Peppermint twist and calliope here at a premium price and no real growth or setting of blooms has occurred after a month. 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. The other reviews were exceptional so this may be an anomaly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performer! I've had this geranium in pots for the past few years and am ordering more for this summer. As blazing hot as it gets here in Texas, this beauty never lets me down. Looks good with my red geraniums, too - very cheerful!
