Calibrachoa (Million Bells)

Calibrachoa Orange

Calibrachoa or million bells are a very popular annual at Martin Garden Center. They tend to have a trailing habit, making them a perfect addition to containers baskets. They come in every color except true blue (and green and black, but it won’t be long ), and there are many multicolors available. Proven Winners again provides popular selections they named Superbells. Some favorites include Superbells pomegranate punch, Superbells Holy Moly, Superbells Sharon, Superbells Tangerine Punch, and the list goes on and on.

At Martin Garden Center, we grow a thousand plus Superbells each year plus we also grow many of the Colibri, Callie and MiniFamous series of million bells. Some of our fav’s include MiniFamous Neo Violet Ice, Colibri Cherry Lace, and Callie Eclipse Lavender.

In caring for your calibrachoa million bells remember that all annuals are heavy feeders so fertilize often. We recommend Fertilome Garden Cote 6, which provides a slow release six month feed. And, supplement occasionally with a high phosphorous fertilizer such as Jack’s Blossom Booster for more blooms.

To keep your basket fresh and prevent legginess, pinch one leg from each cultivar back to the edge of your basket once per week.
