Petunia (Petunia x hybrida)

These delicate and lively flowers are perfect in gardens, hanging baskets, or window boxes. They require full sun and will bloom from spring into fall. They are low growing and can either grow bushy or spread on the ground. Pinching some off after the first bloom will encourage more growth. They are available in white and many shades of violets, pinks, reds, and yellows. They can be found with stripes, contrasting veins, and picoteed, meaning the edge of the flower is a different color than the center. Creating a striking arrangement by mixing several flower colors together. They are a delight to have around your home.
