Calibrachoa (or million bells) is one of the most popular annuals for growing in containers.

It comes in a variety of colors, patterns and single or double blooms that don’t need deadheading.

If you plant these small petunia-like flowers in part-sun, Calibrachoa will bloom profusely until frost as a filler plant.

It is also a favorite of butterflies and hummingbirds.

Do not let them dry out or it will take them 2 weeks to recover.
