Petunia

  • Petunias are one of the most popular garden flowers for both borders and containers.
  • They are prolific bloomers, although some forms require deadheading to keep them going.
  • However, most petunia varieties will bloom throughout the summer, except in extreme heat.
  • You can find petunias in just about every color but true blue and with growing habits that mound in borders or trail down containers.
  • Petunias have wide trumpet-shaped flowers and branching foliage that is hairy and somewhat sticky.
  • Within the petunia family, there is a great variety: single and double blooms, ruffled or smooth petals, striped, veined or solid colors, mounding and cascading habits and even some with fragrance.
  • Most of the petunias sold today are hybrids, developed for specific design purposes.
  • They grow easily when you transplant them to the garden, and this should be done in the spring when the threat of frost has passed.
LIGHT
  • Most petunia varieties prefer full sun, but in the heat of summer, the partial shade will keep them refreshed and blooming better.
WATER
  • Like many flowering annuals, petunias don’t like to be dry for long periods.
  • But they also don’t like wet feet.
  • Weekly, deep watering is sufficient—except for spreading and container-grown petunias, which may require daily watering.
SOIL
  • Petunias require a light, fertile soil that provides good drainage.
  • They like a slightly acidic soil pH.
FERTILIZER
  • Garden petunias like a balanced fertilizer such as 8-8-8, 10-10-10, or 12-12-12.
  • In early to mid-July, start using a liquid fertilizer every two to three weeks.
  • Spreading petunias may need weekly fertilization, while container-grown plants will respond well to a time-release fertilizer.
