This purplish blue variety grows to form low mounds covered with trumpet-shaped blooms that open nonstop until hard frost without need of deadheading. Callie® Dark Blue is particularly lovely with bright green Ipomoea batatas and blends pleasantly in planters. Deer resistant, it likes even moisture. 'Cal Darblu' PP 14,552
Calibrachoa is closely related to the Petunia. Both species were introduced to Europe from South America in the early 19th century. Calibrachoa is fast-growing and thrives in full sun, producing hundreds of small, trumpet-like flowers from spring through late fall. The plants have a low-growing, compact growth habit and are self-cleaning.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

This genus of Petunia look-alikes from North and South America offers several outstanding tender plants. They are low growers with fine foliage and 1″ trumpet-shaped blooms that open non-stop until hard frost without need of deadheading. The plants' compact habit and bright colors make them indispensable for use in containers and hanging baskets.
Give Calibrachoa full sun and plant in average garden soil. Prune if needed to keep them within bounds.
