Pink Calibrachoa (4-Pack)
Whether you love attracting hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden or just enjoy a pretty pop of pink, you’ll adore Bonnie Plants® Pink Calibrachoa. Also known as mini-petunias, these sun-loving, trumpet-shaped pink flowers with dark centers look gorgeous in hanging baskets, windowboxes, and containers where you can enjoy the view--and where pollinators can enjoy the blooms! Annual Pink Calibrachoa looks great alone or combined with other sun-loving plants in containers: it makes the perfect "spiller" for an attractive addition to porches and patios. The sweet pink flowers appear in spring and continue blooming all summer and fall until the first hard freeze. Self-cleaning flowers keep beds and containers tidy: there’s no need to pinch spent blooms. Try filling sunny, bare patches in the garden with Pink Calibrachoa for a bright burst of color in the landscape. A perfect low-maintenance, heat-tolerant, disease-resistant plant, Pink Calibrachoa looks lovely as a companion plant in the veggie garden, where it will attract pollinators to boost your harvests. Practically perfect in every way, Pink Calibrachoa belongs in your garden.
Grow Pink Calibrachoa in well-drained, evenly moist soil and feed with Miracle-Gro® Plant Food at planting. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Use mulch to help retain moisture in the soil. For best results, add high-quality Bonnie Plants® live plant calibrachoa to your garden instead of growing from seed for an instant addition of color and brightness.

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
