What a color combo! The plum-purple petals of Superbells® Plum Calibrachoa are set off by a vibrant yellow eye that acts as a bullseye for hummingbirds and a stunning display to all close enough to see it. The small, petunia-like flowers set a bountiful bloom from planting until the first hard frost, making them a long-blooming delight in late summer and early fall. The distinct color of Superbells® Plum grabs the eye of any passer by!

This profuse plum bloomer is a delight in hanging baskets and combination container plantings. The mounding growth habit also puts out graceful cascades of color. The mounding, trailing combination is a “spiller” that can double as a “filler” in any planting. Plant Superbells® Plum Calibrachoa in a location that gets at least four hours of sunlight per day and watch them put on a big show with their colorful blooms.

Superbells® Plum Calibrachoa Care

Superbells® Plum is similar to other Calibrachoa varieties in that it requires well-drained soil for optimum health and vitality. As long as it has good drainage, it’s a low-maintenance annual that thrives in containers and raised garden beds. Always allow the soil to dry out between watering, and fertilize occasionally.

Superbells® Plum benefits from a little trim every now and then, but even this isn’t required. No deadheading is necessary to keep the blooms coming all season long. If you find that your Calibrachoa is wilting despite damp soil, it is likely that the roots are suffering. Make sure the soil dries out completely before watering again.

Superbells® Plum Calibrachoa Spacing

You can expect your Superbells® Plum Calibrachoa to spread up to 24” wide and trail up to 18”. It is not aggressive and behaves well with neighboring plants. Plant them 8-12” apart for best performance.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

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. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

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. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.
