Plant Spotlight - Calibrachoa (kal-ih-bruh-KO-uh)
Commonly called "million bells", calibrachoas are related to petunias and come in a variety of brilliant colors.
Consider using contrasting colors, such as purple and orange calibrachoas, in your hanging baskets and pots.
These annual flowers are available starting in April or May. They do well in partial shade or full sun.
A scoop of long-lasting pelletized fertilizer at the base of the plant works wonders toward keeping the plants in continuous bloom.
Don't forget to water regularly! In the heat of summer, hanging baskets may need to be watered in the morning and evening.
