Superbells® Red Calibrachoa

I love the intense red color of Superbells Red when planted in my hanging baskets. It is a heavy bloomer that trails nicely over the sides of my baskets. I enjoy mixing Verbena Dark Blue and Strawburst™ Yellow Bracteantha with the Red for a vivid color combination.

(Million Bells) Superbells® Red Calibrachoa is a strong performer in the Calibrachoa family. The deep red color is striking and makes a nice patriotic planter when planted with white and blue. Superbells® Red is one of P. Allen Smith’s Proven Winners® “Hot 25” picks for 2010.


Strawburst™ Yellow Bracteantha

In my opinion every full sun combination planter should have at least one Bracteantha ‘Strawburst™ Yellow’ plant in it. I love the HUGE blooms this plant creates. Plus I also think that the texture of this flowers is very fun.

(Strawflower) Bracteantha ‘Strawburst™ Yellow’ PPAF has excellent heat tolerance and since it is also frost hardy it will perform all season long. ‘Strawburst™ Yellow’ PPAF has outstanding flower color and a well-branched habit. The flowers are the largest we have seen on any other Bracteantha.
