Growing Calibrachoa

Latin Name Pronunciation: kal-ihh-bruh-ko'uh  

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.
