You cannot find a more perfect hanging basket plant with eye popping color! Calibrachoa is a dazzling prolific bloomer and can be used in containers and as a ground cover. This plant has a trailing habit and is smothered with petite blooms all summer long. Looking like miniature petunias, these tender perennials come in a variety of colors such as, violet, pink, yellow, red and white.
Calibrochoa Superbells are winter hardy in zones 9-11, but they have to be grown as an annual in colder climates. They need moist, well-drained soil in full sun. When the soil is dry to the touch, it is time to saturate the plant with water; don’t overwater. These Superbells will do best with a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun. As the season goes on, a good trim may be necessary. This will encourage new growth and more flowers.
Fertilizing is key for flowering because they bloom all summer and need the energy and strength to continue. Provide a slow or controlled release fertilizer when you first plant the Calibrochoa. With proper care you will have blooms until the first frost! Check the recommended time for planting in your area.
