Meet The Petchoas!
The marriage of a Petunia and Calibrachoa resulted in the Petchoa (Pet-KOA-uh) and it combines the best of both plants.
Compact in size they are covered with vibrantly colored petunia size flowers and are self cleaning! It’s leaves aren’t sticky like Petunias so spent blooms fall off instead of sticking to leaves.
The flower stays open during rainstorms like a Calibrachoa and is less easily damaged in the rain – staying pretty longer!
Petchoa handles cooler spring and fall temperatures better than either parent, hence it’s popularity as a Fall plant.
It produces no seeds so all energy is spent making more flowers for butterflies and hummingbirds to enjoy.
Perfect for containers, hanging baskets, and in garden beds.
