It flowers all season with cascading growth. It prefers partial to full sunlight throughout the day and is heat tolerant. Calibrachoas are the perfect choice for your fall container gardens.
Supertunia® Bordeaux™ Petunias are heat tolerant, low-maintenance plants. These gorgeous petunias are drought tolerant and can function as both a filler and a spiller in container gardens.
