Calibrachoa Superbells® Cherry Star
Great for hanging baskets, windowboxes, and patio containers of all types!
The Superbells® just keep getting better! Cherry Star is a vibrant new look, sporting blooms of brilliant fuchsia-crimson with a thin edge of creamy yellow between each petal! Add to this all the Superbells® advantages, and you have an ultra long-blooming, free-flowering plant that stands up to heat, humidity, and drought!
This is a super-trailing Calibrachoa, just 6 to 10 inches high but spreading up to 4 feet long -- about a foot longer than most other Superbells®! And every inch of those trailing stems is studded with blooms! Beginning in late spring in most climates, you get masses and masses of large, single flowers with unforgettable color. They never need deadheading (nor do the plants need to be pinched during the growing process to encourage branching -- they are already beautifully branched!), and they just keep coming all summer and well into autumn!
Butterflies and bees love these blooms, which appear most heavily in full sunshine and enriched, moist garden soil. Once it takes root in your container, however, Cherry Star is quite adaptable, withstanding dry spells, extreme heat, and even rainstorms easily. Whatever Mother Nature has in store for you this season, Superbells® Cherry Star is prepared to take it and bounce right back!
Perfect for windowboxes, hanging baskets, tall containers, and other settings that emphasize its trailing glory, Superbells® Cherry Star is a great accent for the patio, porch, or garden entry. It needs almost no attention beyond regular food and water to flower its best for months on end. And it combines nicely with other Ccalibrachoa, such as MiniFamous Royal Blue and MiniFamous Deep Yellow. It makes a stunning companion to Persian Shield in a large container, and looks lovely with an underplanting of Sweet Potato Bright Ideas Rusty Red at its feet!
Vigorous, disease resistant, and unstoppably floriferous, Superbells® Cherry Star belongs front and center in the sunny annual garden. Pack of 6.
