Great basket plant. Hardy and blooms continuously. Should be even better in warmer weather. Keep moist in well-drained container.

This has been the most fabulous flower I've found for my flower boxes on my porch railings. It doesn't take hardly any time at all from the time I've planted small seedlings, until these plants are just covered with flowers and stay that way until a hard frost. The color on them is very bright and pretty. Going to attach a photo here as well.

This is truly a neon color, just screams at you "LOOK AT ME!"

These Petchoa are so fantastic with their flowers larger than a Calibration but smaller than a regular petunia. Comes in great colors too! Petchoa is from a cross between a Petunia + a Calibrachoa. Will cover itself in shimmering flowers all season.
