Comments




The Angelina Series has great foliar color
and vigor. The habit is compact and not
leggy. It has extremely poor
floriferousness. It's sporadic and brief.

Foliar color was good until mid July when
it started to become chlorotic. Flower
coverage was average to poor. Plants
were dead by August.
The MiniFamous Compact Series did not
do well at all. They were extremely short
lived in the garden lasting only 1 to 2
weeks. MiniFamous Sun did better,
basically performing like most other
Calibrachoas planted in the ground.
Foliar color was good while growth and
flower display was average. MiniFamous
Sun Pink and Pink Veins performed the
best. In the future all Cali's will be trialed
in our cool season trial in containers only.


This was our best performing Heliotrope!
The foliar color, growth and flower display
were excellent all the way to May! In May
the foliar color turned chlorotic and it
moderately bloomed for the remainder of
the season.

Lara White did not last as long as other
Nierembergia varieties trialed. The vigor
was moderate and the flower coverage
was average to poor. In June it started to
decline and it was dead by July.

The Zion Series did not bloom at all this
summer. Foliar color was average to
poor and growth was average. They were
all dead by August.


Foliar color was good and by the end of
May it was in peak bloom. Growth was
moderate until mid May. Plants were
pulled at the beginning of June. In the
future all trailing petunias will be trialed in
containers.

                                Died almost immediately after planting.
                                Does not like high heat and heavy rain in
                                combination. Did much better for us in
      1.1                       extremely porous containers.

                                  The Famous series looked it's best in
                                 May. Plants began to decline in June.
       12   2   2   2   2        Firestorm, Rosestar, and Blue were the
      8.1   1   1   2   1                   best performers.


                                The Fuego Series was average overall.
      9.1       1       2   1   No major growth, only moderate flower
      9.1       1       2       coverage. Nothing outstanding about it.
