Showcased Flower ! Calibrichoa

Calibrachoa is commonly known as "millionbells". They look like miniature petunias on steroids because they are continually covered in blooms. Also, they are in the same family as their cousin, the petunia.
The plant has both mounding and trailing habits. The trailing ones are best placed on outside edge of a container or in a hanging basket. The mounding varieties will fill the space and then spill over an edge. It is great for mixed containers.  
There is no deadheading needed because spent flowers are small and they will dry and fall off.
This plant is a continuous summer bloomer when it receives even moisture and good fertilization in full to partial sun.
Calibrachoa in shade will stretch and look long and spindly.
It is an annual except in very sunny and mild
winter zones where it can be grown as a perennial to 23 degrees.
