    Maintenance Notes:

    Calibrachoa has not been a part of our industry for very long; the first plants were taxonomically described in 1989 and the first cultivars released in 1992. The original plants were found in coastal areas clinging to rocks and surviving in some pretty harsh conditions, they so much resembled Petunias that they were originally referred to as 'Seashore Petunias'. Since their release in the early 90's this crop has grown faster than most other genera and become a major crop in its own right. The family tree of this genus reaches deep down into Latin America; almost all species can be found in either in Argentina, Brazil, or Uruguay. There are about 25 known species of this plant and the breeding of Calibrachoa is a complicated matter of finding which species will cross with the next. They do not all work and it takes a breeder of great skill to come up with all the best crosses that give not only all the disease, heat, and drought tolerance that the original species offer but also offer the best in production characteristics, growth habit, and come close to being daylength neutral as it is all of these characteristics that make for a successful release on the market. Proven Winners has always worked with the world's premier breeder of Calibrachoa and continues to search for the plants which exhibit superior consumer performance, disease resistance, and above all keep raising the bar on what we can expect from this fantastic genus of plants.
