Hot tropical color all over compact, very versatile plants transforms the garden or container into a summer paradise! Hot Pink is the newest arrival in the award-winning Tidal Wave? series of trailing Petunias — but like AAS winner Silver, it does far more than simply trail! Amazingly versatile, this Petunia is called a “hedgiflora” — but we just call it “wonderful”!
The blooms range from 2? to 4 inches across, and boast some of the brightest, richest pink tones ever seen on a Petunia — which is saying a lot, if you think about some of the competition! These blooms won’t keel over at the first sign of trouble, either — they stand up to summer storms beautifully, bouncing back from rain and wind without turning a petal! Expect a long summer season of bloom in the sunny yard or patio.
The plant itself is as much of a star as its flowers, offering an adaptable habit completely unlike other Petunias’. Spaced closely together, the plants form an upright mound or even a low hedge 10 to 22 inches tall, drenched with silvery blooms and utterly charming.
Set against a trellis and given a little help to get started, Hot PInk forms a floriferous climber. Widely spaced in bed or border, it creeps along as a lovely ground cover. And then there’s its “traditional” use as a trailing Petunia in baskets, planters, and other containers!
We predict that this super-easy, beautiful plant will be the spreading Petunia of choice for gardeners looking for something a little distinctive in the garden. It is superbly Botrytis-resistant (which is enough to convince us, even without any other merits, that we want it in our garden!) and very long-blooming. In short, a highly adaptable, vigorous, gorgeous Petunia you really should try! Plant in full sun, feed and water it well all season, and you will be rewarded with masses upon masses of tropical-bright blooms! Pkt is 10 pelleted seeds.
