One of the earliest flowering Calibrachoa, Calibrachoa ‘Cabaret Light Pink’ is a compact, well-branched, trailing perennial, usually grown as an annual, boasting masses of pale pink flowers with a yellow throat from late spring to the first frosts. Vigorous and blooming freely all season, this Calibrachoa is terrific in containers or hanging baskets, where it can function as a filler or trail gracefully over the edges. Resembling a miniature Petunia, it is heat tolerant. Easy to grow, it attracts hummingbirds and is wonderful for creating a dazzling display through the summer.

  • Grows up to 6-10 in. tall (15-25 cm) and 10-12 in. wide (25-30 cm).
  • Thrives in full sun or light shade in well-drained soils. In containers, allow the top of the soil to dry before watering again.
  • This Calibrachoa is perennial in hardiness zones 9-11 or climate zones 8,9,14-24 but treated as an annual in cooler areas.
  • Calibrachoa are usually easiest to grow in containers. They can be fantastic in-ground plants but will struggle in garden beds that have less than perfect drainage. Raised beds would be a good choice for planting Calibrachoa in the landscape.
  • Self-cleaning, no deadheading necessary. Will do best if fertilized on a regular basis. Cut back plants that become leggy.
  • Keep an eye out for aphids, slugs, snails, gray molds, or foot rot.
  • Propagate by softwood cuttings.
