Superbells® Cherry Star Calibrachoa

Calibrachoa Superbells® Cherry Star

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.

Noteworthy CharacteristicsVigor, heat tolerance and resistance to disease are traits we all share. So is being an annual except in zones 9 - 11. You dont have to deadhead old flowers or pinch back stems. Water only when the top of the soil feels dry. Too much water makes our roots rot (Ick). Full sun. Fertilize once a month. How extra double super easy is that?
