Superbells® Miss Lilac Calibrachoa Care
Calibrachoa need well-draining soil, so many gardeners do best with them in containers and a well-draining soil medium. Only plant in the ground if you have well-draining soil that will not get over watered. You may want to avoid growing calibrachoa if you live in a wet climate. Make sure the plant gets at least 4 hours of sunlight per day. Fertilize regularly for optimal performance.
No deadheading is necessary to keep the purple blooms coming. Give your Calibrachoa a light trim at the end of the season if it starts to look open, droopy or tired. This will encourage new, vibrant growth and blooms.
