So extravagantly ruffled and fully held that they look like giant Carnations instead of Petunias, the blooms in this splendid mix are the most colorful, extra-large, fancy Grandifloras it has ever been my pleasure to grow. You will simply love them in baskets and pots, borders and beds, over a long summer season.
Double Cascade was bred for good weather resistance, and these blooms won’t collapse in the first summer storm that comes along. Their many-petalled form looks as dainty as watered silk, but holds its shape remarkably well. And the plant is quite compact, adding to the effect of large, frilly color.
This mix contains the 5 colors that have made Double Cascade a home gardener’s favorite:
Burgundy, the deep carmine-maroon that looks like velvet; Orchid Mist, the extra-large flowered lavender-pink splashed with white, Pink, the classic bright bubble-gum hue, Soft Pink, the powdery version of traditional Pink, and rich, deep Blue, the perfect complement to all the glorious pinks.
These frilly, petal-packed blooms are one of the best sources of lush color for the garden or container! Double Cascade boasts flowers a full 4 to 6 inches across, erupting all over plants 10 to 15 inches tall and 24 to 30 inches wide. Plan for a long, colorful show from this premium mix!
Petunias are unrivalled for long-lasting color in the border, patio containers, windowboxes, and hanging baskets. They bring in the butterflies with their clear, glowing blooms, and are quite low-maintenance. Start seeds indoors 5 to 6 weeks before the last frost date. Transplant into the sunny garden after danger of frost is past. Pkt is 35 seeds.
