Aloha Calibrachoa, Calibrachoa, Million Bells
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Calibrachoa or million bells are rapidly becoming some of the most popular bedding plants on the market. Members of the Aloha Series, developed by German horticultural company Dümmen, are warm-season annuals to tender perennials with more upright stems that create more of a mounding plant rather than the usual spreading, sprawling growth habit. Cultivars included in this series bear slightly larger-sized flowers, more akin to petunias. These blossoms appear prolifically across the growing season, with multiple colors on each blossom, including a yellow throat in each tubular, trumpet-like flower.
Heat-loving and everblooming, million bells grow best in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. Aloha Series plants are a bit more forgiving of non-acidic soil types. They should be fed regularly and do not require deadheading but bloom better into autumn if they are lightly trimmed back in late summer to rejuvenate. These colorful bedding plants are perfect for containers, hanging baskets and border edges.
