A cascade of cheerful coral pink blooms will spill from your hanging baskets and upright containers from spring into fall when you plant the lovely Coralina Superbells®.

SUPERBELLS® Tropical Sunrise

For a bit of splashy glitz 'n glam, plant Superbells® Tropical Sunrise. Its incredibly unique flowers each feature stripes of orange, pink and coral tones—no two flowers are exactly alike. Plant this one in containers on your sunny patio where you can appreciate its novel blossoms up close. It will bloom continuously from spring into fall without having to remove its spent flowers.

What's So Super about Superbells®?

  • Masses of vibrant color
  • Non-stop bloom from spring to frost
  • Self-cleaning flowers—NO deadheading needed
  • Broad color range to suit every palette
  • Remarkable vigor and disease resistance

Uses: Hanging baskets, upright containers, window boxes 

Care Tips:

  • Grow Superbells in full sun to light shade. Since they do not like to have wet feet, make sure there is at least one drainage hole in the bottom of your container.
  • Superbells love to be fed! Feed them with Proven Winners water soluble plant food every third time you water. Also apply slow release fertilizer once in spring and again in midsummer.
  • In midsummer, trim back the stems by a few inches to encourage them to put on new growth full of new blooms. This will keep them blooming into the fall.
