Calibrachoa Cabaret® Midnight Kiss

Order WebTrack
  • Cabaret carries the best-performing lineup of solid colors and exciting bicolors with early flowering!
  • Most varieties flower with a 10.5-hour day length, and stay open and in flower under low light conditions – a big plus at retail.
  • All new genetics flower early when produced for target production weeks prior to Week 5 in the South and Week 14 in the North.
  • Works well in 4.5 to 6-in. (11 to 15-cm) pots up to large baskets.
Novelty addition to the Cabaret series. Deep purple shimmering flowers have an interesting star pattern.
