General Description

Calibrachoa are fast becoming some of the most popular bedding plants on the market. Members of the Cabaret™ series are warm season annuals to tender perennials with low mounding to trailing habits. These Ball Horticultural Company introductions are well-branched and flower prolifically with numerous small, funnel-shaped, petunia-like flowers that come in shades of blue, red, orange, purple, yellow, white and pink.

Heat-loving and everblooming, calibrachoa grow best in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. They should be fed regularly and do not require deadheading but bloom better late in the season if they are lightly cut back in late summer. These fantastic bedding plants are perfect for containers, hanging baskets and border edges.
