Superbells® Sweet Tart – Calibrachoa
Calibrachoas are related to petunias. But they are a new type of plant that can take the fierce drought and continue blooming through the first light frosts of early fall.
Hundreds of continuous blooms were visited daily by the humingbirds.
If these sweet flowers sound familiar, I couldn’t wait to tell you about them this past summer. A First Look. The bright little trumpets were tumbling over the side of the the container.

This summer, I’m going to plant Superbells in hanging baskets because these are bright, attention getting colors. Hummers and butterflies love them.
And here is an interesting observation. These Superbells® Calibrachoa are still alive and green. The containers are sitting on my patio. Perhaps they will be as beautiful this summer as last. I’ll keep you posted.
Proven Winners sent these Superbells to me as a trial last summer. They will be in the garden centers this spring. The colors are intense, fadeproof, and do not need to be deadheaded. These little bells are fuss free.
I am buying these plants again. I can recommend these new flowers and suggest you look for these three Proven Winners:
Superbells® Cherry Star – Calibrachoa hybrid
Superbells® Grape Punch – Calibrachoa hybrid
Superbells® Sweet Tart – Calibrachoa hybrid
I like that you can find local retailers on their web site. Just type in your zip code find out where to buy this plant.

I couldn’t wait to tell you about this little petunia-like flower because the humming birds and I have already decided this is a perfect plant for my patio. It’s continuous color with no added work.
I’ll blog about Superbells Grape Punch, a Calibrachoa hybrid, after it withstands our dry, hot, humid August in Southeast Missouri. (zone 6) It is supposed to look good through fall, until that first hard frost.

Last summer, I told you about my patio Containers – Calibrachoa and Coleus and Look For This Plant Superbells® Coralberry Punch Calibrachoa, so, I am familiar Calibrachoa.
It is my honor to trial Superbells® Grape Punch, for Proven Winners this summer. Read more about this annual after the trial.
