About Million Bells

Nicknamed “Million Bells” for a reason, Calibrachoa is a prolific grower and bloomer who will shock you with her explosion of small, petunia-shaped flowers.

She can bloom all season long without ever needing to be deadheaded (lazy gardeners, here’s lookin’ at you) and makes a fantastic hanging plant. 

Calibrachoa foliage is slightly sticky to the touch and her flowers can be a huge variety of colors, often even multi-colored.

She was first introduced in the 1990s and has had container enthusiasts’ hearts ever since.


Well suited for container planting

Wide variety of colors

Season-long blooms

No dead-heading needed


This plant is probably not winter-hardy outdoors where you live.

Limited Availability

We try very hard to source exactly what you’d like, but sometimes growers run out of plants! While this variety is a great deal at the price shown, we know that it has limited availability. If you want the plant even if it might be more expensive, or in a different size or quantity -- after you place your order, just send us a quick note at Then, we’ll try to get you some version of this from one of our growers. And if we can’t get it from anywhere, of course, we’ll send a refund!

Field-Grown vs. Greenhouse-Grown Plants

Plants which are well-adapted to our local climate are most often field-grown (outside). Field-grown plants are generally cheaper and have the advantage of already somewhat acclimated to our cold winters, but that means they’re not artificially far along in the spring and tend to bloom at the normal time in our area.

Spring annuals and tender perennials are typically grown in Greenhouses so they can be ready and luxurious exactly when customers want them. Some perennials are also “forced” into early bloom in greenhouses. In May, there can be a very big difference between field-grown and greenhouse-grown plants of the same type. The latter typically look good right away (so they’re a great choice where that’s important), but we typically pay a premium for it.

No Pricing or Availability Right Now

We order from a rotating cast of the best nurseries in the Great Lakes region. It looks like we've offered this plant in the past, but the nurseries we're working with this week don't appear to have it in stock at the moment.

Our goal is to bring as many plants together under "one roof" as possible, so we'll try hard to make it available again in the future!
