Growing & Maintenance Tips for Calibrachoa Superbells® 'Blue'

Keeping plants too wet can lead to root rot diseases. Allow the top of the soil to dry before watering again. If your plant is wilting even though the soil is still damp you likely have a root rot problem. Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. The series is bred for heat and low water tolerance trialed for two years before selection in California, Michigan, New Hampshire, Florida, Germany, and tropical Japan. Each year there are over 3000 potential selections and though many are beautiful, selections are usually around 1-2 per year. Additional selection criteria include garden performance, disease resistance for the root rot diseases, tolerance to a wide pH range, tolerance to a wide variety of environmental conditions, and early flowering combined with continuous bloom through the spring and summer.
