Calibrachoa MiniFamous™ Electric Purple
Blooms from late spring into autumn -- nonstop!
Electric Purple is a magenta-infused shade of brilliant that combines well with all the other bright colors of the series. Try it with royal blue, for instance, or perfect white. It's in 2 of our lovely mixes -- Gold and Bold Collection and the MiniFamous™ greatest hits. Try combining it with one of the double-flowered varieties too, like rich amethyst. Wow!
Like all the MiniFamous™ varieties, this plant is 6 to 10 inches high, with new 1- to 2-inch blooms coming up in the center all season long. (No flat-tops here!) It simply covers itself in flowers, and drops them neatly when they pass -- no deadheaded needed, ever! Expect it to trail 2 feet long (easily) and to bloom from late spring -- a couple weeks sooner than other Calibrachoa series -- through summer and into fall. Once it gets going, heat won't bother it, drought won't stress it, and hummingbirds won't leave it alone! For heaviest flowering, of course, treat it well, with good potting soil and plenty of water and food. But don't be surprised when it's the only plant still looking good at noon on that triple-digit-temperature August day! Pack of 6.
