Our head grower, Carol Hedstrom, was very excited to share her new favorite annual for the season. Calibrachoas are popular annual flowers that look great anywhere, and are very easy to grow. They are available in a wide range of colors, and most recently this little beauty, called Cherry Star.
Calibrachoas look like tiny petunias, but they aren’t sticky, they perk up after the rain, and they stay compact and bushy. They trail and cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and other containers and will spread over flower beds.
They exhibit vigorous growth, are highly heat tolerant, and are also resistant to disease. These plants are very low maintenance and require minimal deadheading. They grow best in full sun, and like to be fertilized once a month. Water when the top of the soil is dry, and enjoy!
