Fully double flowers of velvety-purple sport a merry white picotee on this petal-packed, Carnation-flowered variety! So impressive that it won an AAS award, Purple Pirouette offers big 3- to 4-inch blooms on compact plants that reach 10 to 15 inches high and spread just 10 to 12 inches wide in the garden–great for beds and borders!
Starting just 50 days from sowing, the big blooms blanket these robust plants, which remain floriferous over a long season, impervious to heat and adverse weather. A superb choice for hanging baskets or windowboxes, where their spreading habit trails delightfully over the sides of the container!
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.
