Petunia

Petunia

Petunias are popular low-lying annuals that brag of their diversity of brilliant color and attractive green foliage. They bloom all summer with little maintenance and make perfect centerpieces to containers and hanging baskets and serve as good low bordering color to gardens. Petunias require soil that is a peat based mix containing perlite or vermiculite for drainage. They grow best in full sunlight but will survive in shaded areas that provide at least 6 hours of full sunlight daily.  Although petunias are appreciated for their continued growth with low maintenance, when given the extra care they can become the main attraction in containers, window boxes and hanging baskets, and the colorful border or bush flower to any garden. Their colors range from whites to yellows to pinks to reds and purples, with an impressive selection of mixed colors.
