Description

Calibrachoa or million bells are rapidly becoming some of the most popular bedding plants on the market. Members of the Aloha Series, developed by German horticultural company Dümmen, are warm-season annuals to tender perennials with more upright stems that create more of a mounding plant rather than the usual spreading, sprawling growth habit. Cultivars included in this series bear slightly larger-sized flowers, more akin to petunias. These blossoms appear prolifically across the growing season, with multiple colors on each blossom, including a yellow throat in each tubular, trumpet-like flower. The Aloha series has a semi-upright habit, medium vigor, big flowers and tropical colors.

This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep. Trim off the flower heads after they fade and die to encourage more blooms late into the season. It is a good choice for attracting bees and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.
