Sweet Notes of Hyacinth, Honey, and Rose!
(P)?Pkt of 10 seeds
Only one thing could make a spreading petunia even more appealing, and this one’s got it: FRAGRANCE! Notes of sweet honey, roses, and hyacinths combine to create the scent of these indigo blooms, which arise by the thousand over a season that spans many months. The fragrance is noticeable all day, but really intensifies in late afternoon and evening, making Evening Scentsation the perfect choice for balcony, deck, patio, or any part of the garden where guests gather for entertaining.
Evening Scentsation? has already won a 2017 All-America Selection, and we expect more honors to follow. This is a breeding breakthrough extraordinaire, a plant with all the merits of, say, the Wave? series, plus a sweet scent and a really deep, intense flower color. What could be better?!
The blooms begin opening in late spring in most climates, continue through summer, and go right up to frost. They average 2? inches wide and are a siren call to all butterflies in the neighborhood. Evening Scentsation is a multiflora, very tolerant of rain and excessive sun and heat. The habit is both mounding and spreading, reaching 5 to 8 inches high and trailing nearly 36 inches long from baskets and planters. Or, if set into the garden about a foot apart, the plants will fill in available space with a nicely mounded size and more blooms than you can imagine!
Evening Scentsation? is easy to grow from our convenient pelleted seed, which should be started indoors 5 to 6 weeks before transplant to the early-spring garden. Set out plants when all danger of frost is past. The plant will begin blooming 10 to 12 weeks after sowing. It is magnificent in hanging baskets, windowboxes, and large containers, as well as an unrivaled ground cover for bright sun. Stupendous!
