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.
