Calibrachoas were first introduced to the home
gardener in 1998 with the 'Million Bells' series
by Proven Winners to great acclaim! A cousin of
the petunia, Cali's sport oodles of small petunia
shaped blooms, but they don't have the
'stickiness' you get with Petunias. SuperBells are
Proven Winners’ premium Calibrachoas -they’re
covered with hundreds of cascading flowers from
early spring until frost. Their versatility and
colour range make them a 'must have' for every
- Garden Performance
Perfect for mixed containers and hanging
baskets, they also do well in the ground.
SuperBells are vigorous, maintenance free, and
super-quick to recover after rain.
Fertilizer: A moderate feeder.
Use any all purpose fertilizer, compost, etc.
For small containers, should yellow leaves
develop in spite of regular feeding, apply
'chelated' iron (available at all garden
centres where fertilizer is sold), at the
labeled rate every three weeks. This will
lower the pH which is what Cali's like.
Water only when the
top of the soil feels dry.
