Petchoa is a semi-trailing to trailing, annual and tender perennial. This revolutionary hybrid is a fairly new genus; a result of the genetic cross between a petunia and calibrachoa. The Petchoa plant features the best characteristics of two top selling species. They inherit strong roots, providing good pH tolerance and foliage health under stressful conditions, excellent plant vigor, large flowers, and ease of growing from their Petunia parent. The Calibrachoa side contributes the genes for an intense and vibrant flower that holds up under severe weather, and lush but non-sticky foliage that maintains a fresh clean look not requiring additional maintenance.
Supercal, a series developed by Sakata, includes eleven different varieties, each conveying a uniquely colored blossom. This vigorous plant will grow two-inch bell shaped flowers on rich green foliage. It is commonly used in hanging baskets, container combinations, and for mass planting in the landscape. Taller and fuller varieties go nicely as mixed fillers in the garden. Supercal grows best in moist, fertile, well-drained soil, and is a full to partial sun exposure flower. A unique feature of Supercal is its ability to maintain color while tolerating the early cooler temperatures in the 20’s, remaining unharmed by frost, and the higher temperatures, without being scorched by the heat. Petchoa will continuously bloom all season long. Key features of this variety include heat, frost, and drought tolerance, and no deadheading required.
