Description:
These new release Superbells take these popular plants to a new level. So easy to grow, they will produce huge quantities of small petunia-like flowers on well-rounded plants for a long season. Superbells look superb in containers or hanging baskets on a patio, deck or in a courtyard or planted in the garden. Superbells are the ideal plant for adding long-lasting potted colour highlights to the low-maintenance ‘outdoor room’. Individual colours can be planted alone or in combinations or mix and match Superbells with other flowering plants. They can be planted in garden beds for a mass display or for eye-catching highlights. Cherry Star has red flowers with a yellow star.

Cultural Notes: Proper watering is the key to growing Superbells. Never allow the roots to get too wet, so water them only when the top of the potting mix/soil is dry. As they bloom so profusely they will benefit from regular applications of a well-balanced fertiliser throughout the flowering period. A regular addition of seaweed extract is beneficial. They are best grown in full sun. Occasionally pinch back the trailing stems to reinvigorate growth. Information and images are courtesy of Aussie Winners.
