Description

Calitunia Pink Petchoa is blanketed in stunning pink trumpet-shaped flowers with yellow throats and rose centers at the ends of the stems from mid spring to late summer. Its pointy leaves remain green in color throughout the season.

Landscape Attributes

Calitunia Pink Petchoa is a dense herbaceous annual with a trailing habit of growth, eventually spilling over the edges of hanging baskets and containers. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.

This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep. Trim off the flower heads after they fade and die to encourage more blooms late into the season. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Calitunia Pink Petchoa is recommended for the following landscape applications;

Mass Planting;Border Edging;General Garden Use;Container Planting;Hanging Baskets

This fast-growing annual will normally live for one full growing season, needing replacement the following year.
