Petunias and Million Bells
Back in May, I showed you these Supertunia Bordeaux and Superbells Blue Moon Punch that I received from Proven Winners. I thought it was time to check back in and show you how they are doing. If you have not tried Calibrachoa (also called Million Bells) - you really must. They look similar to petunias, but they are smaller and so prolific. I might actually like them better than petunias, but who should ever play favorites with flowers?!
You can read more about this particular variety - Superbells Blue Moon Punch. I got the early jump start on these, they aren't available in garden centers until next year. I love them. They have bloomed nonstop since the day I planted them. They don't seem to get leggy like petunias and I never have to remove spent blossoms. Next year I am going to make sure almost of my garden pots have a few in them. They come in a variety of colors, I've grown a yellow and a coral shade before.
I only took one photo of the petunias, but you can see that they are flourishing also. This particular variety is the Supertunia Bordeaux. I wanted you to see the lovely dark purple accents. This is one of the top selling annuals of 2017 and I can see why. It's gorgeous. No matter how many new flowers I try, I will always have a couple pots of petunias on my porch!
