What a TKO (total knockout) this color variation of Superbells is! Deep purple with a dark purple, almost black throat and a bright yellow center, larger than usual blooms at about 1 ½ inches across. The flowers completely blanket the foliage with luscious blooms, creating an outstanding display all of its own! Or pair this with a complementary colored plant variety and a contrasting color variety to really amp this up and create an incredibly beautiful presentation.

Calibrachoas are native to South America where they grow as semi woody shrubs in the open grassland areas. They are perennial in Zones 9a through 11b and are grown as wildly popular annual container plants in Zones 3-8 with great success. They are extremely sensitive to soggy soil so most gardeners opt to grow them in containers rather than in the ground, but with proper planning, these do make incredible landscape plants as well.

Superbells® Grape Punch Calibrachoa Care

It cannot be emphasized enough how important it is that the soil where these are planted be well draining. Calibrachoa will not tolerate soggy soil. Water weekly in dry weather and plant them in full sun. They tolerate heat and humidity, but also thrive in more temperate locations equally as well. Fertilize with a slow release fertilizer to start with, and add a water soluble fertilizer to your waterings once a month or so for lush green growth and vigorous flowering. Calibrachoa are sensitive to soil pH changes, preferring 5.5 to 5.8 pH, so use of a liquid chelated iron spray on the foliage will correct any yellowing that occurs because of this.

Deadheading is not required as spent blooms drop off on their own. Pinch back newly established plants to encourage branching. Calibrachoas grow rapidly during the warm summer months so if you feel the need to prune back errant growth, or shear it if it opens up and becomes leggy, do so with a pair of sharp shears, cutting back about ⅓ of the volume of the plant. It will respond with renewed branching and flowering well into fall.

Superbells® Grape Punch Calibrachoa Spacing

This low growing, mounding annual appreciates some space. Topping out at about 12 inches tall and spreading out to 24 inches wide, give it 8 to 12 inches of space between plants. It is also a trailing plant, cascading down about 24 inches over your container or rock wall and looks wonderful when paired with petunias, lantana, coleus, euphorbia and ipomoea. You will love the compliments you receive from your friends so place this plant where it can be fully appreciated.

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.
