Calibrachoas are a new type of plants that sort of look like little Petunias, only they arent sticky, perk right back up after it rains, and stay compact and bushy even when stressed. Just 6 - 10 inches tall, long, long, trailing branches cascade over the sides of hanging baskets and other containers, and spread over flower beds. Vigorous, heat tolerant and disease resistant. Annual, except in zones 9 - 11. You dont have to deadhead old flowers or pinch back stems. Water only when the top of the soil feels dry. Too much water makes roots rot. Full sun. Fertilize once a month. Attract hummingbirds.
