Calibrachoa, Callie™ Sunrise Calibrachoa, Million Bells
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Callie™ Sunrise million bells bloom all season long. The numerous flowers are yellow but heavily netted and veined with orange-red, making blossoms look pure orange from a distance. Deep inside the flower throats pure yellow is seen. This cousin of the petunia has more wiry stems that don't break as readily and seem to avoid infestation by tobacco budworms. It performs best where growing temperatures are moderately warm, not too hot and humid.
The spreading, trailing Calibrachoa hybrids in the Callie™ Series were introduced by Goldsmith Seeds/Syngenta. Million bells are warm-season annuals to tender perennials with low mounding to trailing habits. They are well-branched and flower prolifically with numerous small, funnel-shaped, petunia-like flowers that come in nearly every color.
Heat-loving and everblooming, million bells grow best in full sun and fertile, well-drained soil. They should be fed regularly and do not require deadheading but bloom better again in fall if they are lightly trimmed back by late summer. These versatile, heavy-blooming bedding plants work well in containers, hanging baskets and border edges.
