"The Chameleon calibrachoa is very popular and the demand in both Europe and North America has been huge this year," says Chris Berg of Westhoff. "The commercial growers are just now starting their crops for spring sales," he says.
These 'first-in-class varieties' from Westhoff continually change throughout the season, reacting to light levels, day-length and other seasonal factors. "Chameleon provides consumers a unique blend of colors on a single plant – at any time of year, the plants display 3 or 4 different colors at one time. These vigorous varieties have outstanding garden performance and season long durability," says Berg. According to him, the Chameleon works great as upscale monoculture basket items, window boxes or blended with other items in mixed containers.
Chameleon calibrachoa are offered in Europe as unrooted cuttings or young plants from Kientzler, PAC, Florensis & Westhoff. In North America, Chameleon are exclusively produced by Dümmen Orange.
Westhoff also presented the Chameleon calibrachoa at the flowertrials in Germany, last June. In a video at the Flowertrials, Chris Berg presents this bedding plant.
