Up your container game with the Superbells® Double Twilight™ Calibrachoa. This lush plant is covered in double-petal flowers from spring through fall, and what’s more, the flowers feature an ombre look with lavender petals that gradually fade to a deep, dark purple near the center. The stems of this trailing beauty can cascade up to 30 inches, making it a dramatic addition to hanging baskets. An abundance of beautiful blooms and a sprawling habit make the Calibrachoa a summer-time favorite of many gardeners.

Calibrachoa are mounding trailing plants, which means they are more wide than tall. The stems naturally spread and cascade, making this plant very well suited to containers and hanging baskets that will overflow with foliage. This plant is native to Brazil, so it is heat tolerant, and it likes to dry out, making it a good choice for forgetful gardeners who do not always keep up with watering. Calibrachoa really dislike wet feet, and the plant is prone to root rot, so good drainage is necessary. Containers and raised beds that are more likely to offer better drainage are good planting options.

Superbells® Double Twilight™ Calibrachoa Plant Care

Calibrachoa can be particular about water and soil pH, but once you dial in on the proper levels, this plant is very easy to grow and maintain, and you will be rewarded with beautiful blooms. Average water needs mean the top few inches of the soil should dry out before watering. Do not water if the soil is damp, and ensure the plant is in well-draining soil with a pH of 5.0–6.5. A slow-release fertilizer will keep the Calibrachoa healthy and blooming throughout the growing season. Find a spot that receives 4 to 6 hours of sunlight exposure for best results.

Calibrachoa naturally shed their spent flowers, so deadheading is seldom necessary. A slight trim around midsummer can give the plant a more neat and tidy appearance and promote new growth and blooms. As a perennial in growing zones 9 through 11, Calibrachoa can handle year-round outdoor living in warm climates. The plant can overwinter indoors in cold regions.

Superbells® Double Twilight™ Calibrachoa Plant Spacing

Calibrachoa plants like to spread out and should be spaced 8 to 12 inches apart from other plants and buildings. With proper care, the plants will spread and cover an area of 12 to 24 inches. A 12-inch container is enough space for 2 to 3 of these mounding plants.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
