Calibrachoa are also known as “trailing petunia” or “million bells” thanks to their prolific bloom of petunia-like flowers. The Superbells® Coral Sun variety features flowers with bright orange and coral petals, and a sunny yellow center. This unique color palette offers a punch of vibrant color to any container, planter box or hanging basket. Plus, they bloom continuously through the warmth of late spring all the way until your first hard frost in the fall, so your containers will have a pop of color all season long.
Combine the mounding, trailing habit with the thrill of abundant flowers and you have a “spiller” like no other! Superbells® Coral Sun Calibrachoa cascade over the side of containers and baskets, setting the whole arrangement aglow with its blazing blooms. Consider growing Superbells® on a sunny patio to entice an up-close visit from hummingbirds. The bright blooms and nectar are a hummingbird favorite.
Superbells Coral Sun Calibrachoa Care
Calibrachoa are low-maintenance annuals that require no deadheading. However, Calibrachoa do not like to have constantly wet or soggy soil. So, be sure to plant them in a container with good drainage. Let the soil dry out between watering, and only water them when the top 1” of soil is dry to the touch. Calibrachoa require a well-balanced, water-soluble fertilizer about once a month, as well as a neutral soil pH (pH of 5.5 to 6).
Most gardeners find success with Calibrachoa by planting it in containers. However, garden beds with well-draining soil, over 4 hours of sunlight, and a neutral soil pH are perfect for displaying these vibrant beauties as a mass planting. If your plants begin to look tired at the end of the growing season, give them a trim and an application of fertilizer or compost to see them perk back up.
Superbells Coral Sun Calibrachoa Spacing
Superbells® Coral Sun Calibrachoa have a lovely cascading growth habit, so be sure to give them space when you plant them in containers or beds. When planting in a garden bed, give up to 12” of space between each plant. For containers, plant them closer together, with 4-5” of space between plants.
