With rich, velvety red flowers and a black eye this constant bloomer is a star performer. Million bells create endless possibilities in the landscape and containers.

They will do best if fertilized in a regular basis. With superb color, heat tolerance and disease resistance, this one will put on quite a show all summer long!

As the season goes on the plants can sometimes just start to look open and not as good. This can happen even if they are being watered and fertilized correctly. Fortunately this is very simple to fix. Grab a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears and give the plants an all over trim. This will cause them to branch out more and should stimulate new growth and flowering, especially if you fertilize right after trimming them back. Just like your hair looks a lot better after a trim, your plants often will too. You will sacrifice flowers for a few days, but the plants should come back flowering more than ever shortly.Trim back in late July or early August to extend them into early fall.
