Resembling tiny petunias, calibrachoa blooms from spring until fall without a pause until frost sets in. The tender perennial (which is usually treated like an annual) is available in a dizzying range of colors: pink, yellow, red, orange, white, green, gold, and even combinations of hues. Plant calibrachoa in a hanging basket to show off its spreading shape, or use it as a filler or spiller in a large mixed container. As a bonus, there’s no need to deadhead these garden glories; they’ll thrive with full sun, moist soil, and monthly fertilization. Available at Burpee.com; $19.99 for 3 plants.
