  • The first star pattern in seed calibrachoa! Flower colour may shade slightly. Under warmer night conditions, the strawberry colour may become lighter, while maintaining a consistent star pattern.
  • Plants have good vigour, with a more uniformly branched and controlled habit than Crave Sunset.
  • Grows more vigorously than the Kabloom varieties. 
  • Requires 12-hour daylength for best flowering.

Night interruption or daylength extension are beneficial. Strawberry Star is approximately 7 days slower to flower than Sunset.
