From Proven Winners: There is nothing more super than Superbells. If there was a word that meant extra, extra super it still wouldn't be as super as we are. Calibrachoas are a new type of plants that sort of look like little Petunias, which makes sense seeing as were related. Only Superbells aren't sticky, perk right back up after it rains, and stay compact and bushy even when were stressed. Superbells are Proven Winners newest Calibrachoas. Were the ones covered with hundreds of flowers from early spring all the way through those first light frosts. Just 6 - 10 inches tall, our long, long, trailing branches cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and other containers, and spread over flower beds. Hummingbirds are cuckoo about us.
