Superbells® Morning Star Calibrachoa Care
Superbells® Morning Star™ Calibrachoa prefer part sun to sun with regular watering and well-drained soil. Prune or pinch before planting to increase fullness and branching of the plant. Fertilize regularly with a well-balanced water-soluble n-p-k ratio 24-12-17 fertilizer. Calibrachoas are sensitive to pH imbalances and iron deficiency so if fertilizing regularly and yellowing occurs, increase or decrease pH with a different fertilizer. Superbells® Morning Star™ Calibrachoa is a continuous bloomer and deadheading is not necessary but they will benefit from trimming back if the plant begins to look tired. Trimming will promote new growth and branching.
Superbells® Morning Star Calibrachoa are most commonly grown as annuals planted in spring and growing on until frost. They are hardy from zones 9a to 11b.
Superbells® Morning Star Calibrachoa Spacing
Superbells® Morning Star™ Calibrachoa are low growing, mounded trailers reaching a max height of 12inches, spreading from 12-24 inches, and trailing up to 30 inches. Plant 8-12 inches apart in garden border plantings or plant 5 1” plugs into 12” hanging baskets.
