& Maintenance Tips

The Calliope Geranium prefers full sun to partial shade and prefers average, moist but well-drained soil. Trimming back dead blossoms encourages new blooms. Please remember, containers aren’t as drought resistant, they may need a little extra TLC and consistent watering if in containers!
