The fun colouring has a feel of the tropics. The plants have a nice rounded habit and plenty of blooms. The bright pink petals have a deeper mauve eye and a large flash of gold. Early flowering, excellent branching and great growth habit.
They will establish quickly and don’t require much care, they are heat tolerant and disease resistant. Calibrachoas are so wonderfully versatile, their semi trailing to trailing habit looks the goods in gardens, containers, window boxes, hanging baskets, as ground covers, garden edging or as filler plants in your borders. Beneficial insects love the blooms too.
In the garden, place them 30-40cm apart. In pots, chose ones that are around 30cm so that the foliage can spill from the sides. The plants have a naturally rounded, well branched habit so there is no need to pinch out the foliage.
Grow in a sunny spot with well drained soil. You can add a liquid fertiliser every other week to keep them blooming at their best, or use a slow release fertiliser spring and summer – remember they flower a lot so are appreciate a bit of a treat. Water to establish and then keep moist in active growth. Prune back as flowering starts to wane in winter and await their reshoot early spring, you will have years of love from these plants.
Common names for Calibrachoa include Million Bells, Seaside Petunias and Mini Petunias.
