Calliope Geranium is what you get when you take the best attributes from a zonal and an ivy geranium and name it after an mythic goddess. Calliope Dark Red have the best of both worlds producing a nice, bushy plant with gorgeous blooms. They spread out more than regular zonal geraniums and are bushier than the old ivy geraniums.
