Calibrachoa (Calibrachoa spp.)
Calibrachoa Plant FeaturesCalibrachoa is a lot easier to grow than it is to spell! This sun-loving annual charmer is one of the best choices for pots, baskets, and window boxes. Growing 8 to 10 inches tall, most varieties of calibrachoa are profuse trailers that will tumble and spill over the edge of your favorite container. The small, petunia-like blooms of calibrachoa come in a wide variety of colors and bi-colors that appear all summer long. Although they make good bedding plants, we recommend using calibrachoa primarily as a reliable container plant.

Calibrachoa Growing InstructionsAlthough calibrachoa is a sun lover, it will grow almost as well in partial shade. Just remember to feed it every week or so with a dilute solution of liquid fertilizer. Because calibrachoa is in almost constant bloom it does best with a few extra meals. If the plants start to get leggy, clip them back to encourage new growth.
