General Information: Calibrachoa looks very much like a miniature petunia, but it isn’t. Featuring hundreds of small, petunia-like flowers, Million Bells is a fast growing, heavy blooming, self-cleaning variety that blooms from spring through late fall. Million Bells has a low-growing, compact growth habit, and thrives in full sun. This beautiful new trailing variety is perfect in baskets, window boxes or as a ground cover, and is available in three colors. Million Bells ‘Trailing Pink’ is a soft, lavender-pink shade, also with a yellow center. Million Bells ‘Cherry Pink’ is a vibrant hot-pink (almost red) color with a yellow center.
Planting: Plant in full sun or part shade in moist, well-drained soil that does not stay consistently wet. Add organic material such as peat moss for best results.
Placement: Place in a sunny location with a southern, eastern or western exposure. Avoid water-logged, soggy soils.
Temperature: Million Bells is an annual that is hardy to 28-30 degrees F. It thrives in moderate temperatures. While it will tolerate light frost, it will not tolerate severe frost or freezing. Keep tender greenhouse plants above 38°.
Watering: Keep soil mixture moist until well established. Water daily during hot, dry summer months.
Fertilizer: Fertilize once a month in groundcover plantings. If planted in containers, fertilize every 5th watering. This could mean once a week if watering everyday. Use 15-30-15.
Pruning: Million Bells will spread and freely flower without any pinching, deadheading or pruning.
