General Description

Colorburst Pro™ red is a warm season annual to tender perennial with a compact, mounding habit. Throughout the season it is covered with numerous small, funnel-shaped, petunia-like flowers of red.

Calibrachoa are popular bedding plants because they are everblooming and very easy to grow. Members of the Colorburst Pro™ series are warm season annuals to tender perennials with compact, mounding habits. These Sakata Seed introductions flower prolifically and come in shades of yellow, violet, lavender, red 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.
