They have the incredible flower power of Petunias, bringing flowers from spring to frost, in rich colors that never fade. Yet they never need the annoying deadheading that petunias require. They have the billowy, full mounded form that Calibrachoas produce making them perfect for the borders, flower beds, or hanging baskets. Yet the flowers are large and in charge, not tiny like typical Calibrachoa. Foliage is never sticky like petunias, allowing old flowers to easily fall away.2.5 These plants are exceptionally compact, means the stems are chock full of flowers and don’t have long leggy stems that are so typical of petunias late in the season. Old Glory represents the newest collection of Petchoa from the world’s premier breeder of Petchoa, Sakata. Flowers take on a rich sheen making them appear almost shiny and glow. Old Glory is a mix of Red, White and Blue colored flowers, bringing patriotism to the forefront of your garden all summer long. Try growing in a hanging basket for an easy to care for, splendid look. Simply plant 3-4 plants in an average 12” hanging basket. Great in cool or hot weather conditions. Essentially with Petchoa you can expect loads of large flowers on robust, healthy plants, and no pesky stick foliage.
