Calibrachoa Aloha Kona Cherry Red Plants for Sale Online
Calibrachoa Aloha Kona Cherry Red produces beautiful deep red trumpet-shaped flowers. They are complemented by pointy deep green foliage. Calibrachoa looks great when planted in hanging bots because of its trailing growth habit. They do very well when planted in a landscape as a mass planting or a border plant. They grow very fast and spread wide so they must be given the space to grow to full maturity.
They do require some maintenance, every so often. We recommend cutting off any dead foliage and flowers to promote and 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 bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, etc., and are deer and rabbit resistant.

How to Care for Calibrachoa Aloha Kona Cherry Red Plants
After purchasing a Calibrachoa Aloha Kona Cherry Red Flower, be sure to read our recommended care instructions to ensure a healthy and happy plant!
How Much Sunlight Should My Aloha Cherry Red Flower Get?
Aloha Kona Cherry Red flowers like to be planted in the sun but can survive in shaded areas. They are cold-hardy plants that give them the ability to do well in shade, but they will blossom to their fullest when given at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight each day. If you choose to plant your flower in a container make sure you place that pot in an area that does not receive full shade every day.
When Should I Water My Calibrachoa Cherry Red Plant?
We recommend watering your new plant until it is fully established. Calibrachoa is drought-tolerant and does not suffer if its soil dries out slightly. However, they do prefer to have evenly moist soil. Be very careful not to overwater your plants because it will cause their roots to sit in standing water and that can cause root rot. Check your plant's soil every so often and if you notice it is dry to the touch, it is time to water.
What Soil Does My Calibrachoa Need?
Calibrachoa Cherry Red does best when planted in well-draining, organic soil. They are not picky when it comes to soil pH levels. Be sure to keep their soil evenly moist, without overwatering them. Overwatering your flowers will cause damage to their root system. Aloha Kona Cherry Red can tolerate urban pollution and thrives in an inner-city environment. They look beautiful when planted in a hanging planter because of their trailing growth habit. Use well-draining soil and a container with drainage holes when potting this flower.
Do I Need to Prune My Calibrachoa Cherry Red?
You do not have to prune your Calibrachoa regularly. This plant will deadhead itself most of the time, making its care not too tricky. However, if you want to clean up your flowers and remove any dead foliage, flowers, or stems whenever you think is necessary. Doing this will help encourage new growth to blossom, even late in their growing season. If your plant is potted, you can trim it back to your desired shape and size if it grows too big.
