Little Wine Cup is the most consistent recurrent bloomer that I have. Blooms start about the same time here as Happy Returns, but Little Wine Cup doesn't take as long a summer break. Amount of sun can really vary the bloom color. Seems like a bit of shade gives a better "wine" color. Too much sun gives it a "brownish" cast.

Forms many proliferations and each one will develop into an identical duplicate of the mother plant.
