Cherry red blooms with a deeper eye and yellow throat. The blooms completely engulf the foliage for much of the year. Just one of these annuals can overflow a 20cm pot and bring you six months of awe.
These annuals 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.
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. A mid season trim, then some fertiliser will have them repeat until frost.
