Superbells Double Calibrochoas racking up awards

Since 2018, Superbells Double calibrachoa varieties have won 67 awards, yet in my travels gardeners seem to rarely venture off the single-petaled path. I admit I have a flaming passion for the punch varieties like Superbells Grape Punch, Pomegranate Punch and Black Currant Punch. The last four years, however, I have gotten to try some double selections and they have all blown away any misconceptions I might have had and probably yours, too.
