Yellow Calibrachoa Plants for Sale Online
Yellow Calibrachoa produces beautiful chartreuse trumpet-shaped flowers that are complemented by pointy deep green foliage. This annual plant looks great when planted in hanging pots because of its trailing growth habit. They also do well when planted as a border plant or a mass planting in a garden. They grow fast and spread wide so they must be given the space to do so.
These plants need a little TLC every so often, but nothing too serious. We recommend cutting off any dead flowers or foliage to encourage new growth. Cutting off old blossoms makes room for new ones to grow, even late in the growing season. These flowering plants attract pollinators like hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, etc. They are also deer and rabbit resistant!

How to Care for Yellow Calibrachoa Plants
After purchasing a Yellow Calibrachoa Plant, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to ensure a happy and thriving plant!
How Much Sunlight Should My Yellow Calibrachoa Flower Get?
Calibrachoa plants are cold-hardy and can survive in well-shaded areas, however, they prefer to be in the sun. We recommend giving them at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight a day to ensure they bloom to their fullest potential. Planting them in a container is perfectly fine as long as they are placed in a spot that has great sunlight for the majority of the day.
Do I Need to Prune My Yellow Calibrachoa?
Pruning is not a requirement when owning a Calibrachoa, they are known to deadhead themselves. However, you can clean up your plant whenever you deem it necessary. We recommend cutting off any dead foliage, stems, or flowers if you notice them. This will help encourage new growth to blossom even late in their growing season. If you have potted your plant, feel free to cut it back to your desired shape and size if it begins to trail too long.
When Should I Water My Calibrachoa Yellow Plant?
We recommend watering your plant regularly until it is fully established. This plant is drought-tolerant and does not suffer if its soil dries out slightly. However, they prefer to have an evenly moist soil saturation. Be very careful not to overwater your flowers because this will damage your plant and cause its root system to rot. Check on its soil periodically and if you notice the soil is dry to the touch, it is time to water. If it is still moist, wait a day or so.
What Soil Does My Calibrachoa Need?
Calibrachoa is not picky when it comes to soil pH levels. They do their best when planted in organic, well-draining soils. Make sure you keep their soil evenly moist, without overwatering them. Overwatering will cause serious damage to their root system like root rot. Yellow Calibrachoa can tolerate urban pollution and thrive perfectly in an inner-city environment. This plant looks beautiful when potted in a hanging planter because of its trailing growth habit. Make sure you use well-draining potting soil and the container has great drainage holes.
