Description

A happy circus of color, you’ll fall in love with this bi-color petunia that displays five red hearts on each 2½” blossom. Yellow adds a striking contrast to complete the look. Its semi-trailing habit and long performance make it perfect for containers and baskets. Striking bloomer with profuse cascades of pink and yellow flowers. Offers a great show in hanging baskets, window boxes and containers. Easy to grow and maintain.

The Petunia flower can come in many different colors including red, white, yellow, blue and fuchsia, they can also be dual colored or spotted. A most useful tender bedding plant, commonly sold in garden centers as pot and plug plants. You can sow at home but it needs to be started in heat in late winter. There are bush varieties ideal for pots and trailing varieties such as Surfinia and Million Bells which make great basket plants – a well fed Surfinia can cascade over 1 meter. The flowers go over discreetly, although they can be spoilt by heavy rain – pick off faded flowers if they are unsightly. Plant out after all danger of frost is past
