For a colourful arrangement that will attract hummingbirds

Looking for a super easy idea for a lively flower arrangement? Simply intersperse Calibrachoa hybrids ‘Superbells® Dreamsicle’ with ‘Superbells® Red’ around the edge of a medium-sized container for a vigorous and eye-catching balance of colour.

Lasting from spring until fall frosts, Calibrachoa’s prolific blooms do not require deadheading and are irresistible to hummingbirds. Its one weakness is its susceptibility to root rot, so allow the planting to dry out between watering.

For a dramatic centre point to the arrangement, add Carex flagellifera ‘Graceful Grasses™ Toffee Twist’. Hardy to zone 7, it can eventually be transplanted into the garden in warm zones. Cut it back in spring, leaving one-third of the plant, and divide in spring or fall.
