Interesting Facts

Plants in the genus Calibrachoa are called Mini Petunias for a reason. They are very closely related to Petunias and are native to South America like Petunias. Both genera of plants were introduced to the European horticultural market in the 19th century, but it wasn't until the early 1990's that Calibrachoa really became a viable horticultural plant.
