Rich deep color all over compact, very versatile plants transforms the garden or container into a summer paradise! Purple is the newest arrival in the award-winning Tidal Wave? series of trailing Petunias — but like AAS winner Silver and tropical Hot Pink, it does far more than simply trail! Amazingly versatile, this Petunia is called a “hedgiflora” — but here at Park, we just call it “wonderful”!
The blooms range from 2? to 4 inches across, and boast some of the truest purple tones to be found 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 blooms and utterly charming. Set against a trellis and given a little help to get started, it 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 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!) 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.
