Another Million Bells variety (Calibrachoa) that is tough in almost unbearable summer conditions. This little gem laughed at the weather and kept blooming and growing, looking fresh and beautiful in a container tub, as it has since spring. Received a good drink of water tonight, after some days of drought, from the water wand or Mother Nature, and smiled at me. Love the color combo on this one.
