Background information

Calibrachoa was named after Antonio de la Cal y Bracho, a 19th-century Mexican botanist. Closely related to Petunia, this  species shows external differences and fertilization factors that clearly distinguish these two plant types. Root stability, very early flowering and a long flowering period characterises MiniFamous® Double, turning it into Selecta one’s new standard in the vegetative double Calibrachoa market.
