Easy Wave Burgundy Velour Petunia
Petunia x hybrida. These fast growing plants bloom freely all season without the need to be cut back, and tolerate both heat and cooler conditions better than standard Petunia. The Easy Wave series promises the season-long performance customers have come to expect from the Wave series but have a more mounded form with a controlled spread making them ideal for borders, beds and containers. Flower size is approximately 3”. Height 6-8” with a spread of 24-36”. Approximately 10 seeds/pkg.
Start inside 8 weeks before last frost. Sprinkle the tiny seed onto soil surface and gently press them in; do not cover. Provide light and constant warmth (21-24 degrees C). Use a bottom heat source for best results. Transplant after last frost into a full sun location. Wave petunias need full sun (at least 6 hours daily) exposure and well-drained, fertile soil. Provide plenty of water and regular fertilizer for peak performance. Space plants 12 to 18 inches apart in beds, or place 1 to 3 plants in each 10 inches container. With the Tidal Wave petunias, 12-inch spacing forces the plants to grow 2 feet tall, while wider spacing allows the plants to grow shorter and spread.
Feed plants every 2 weeks with a complete plant food, such as 10-20-10 or an organic alternative, to maintain constant flowering. Pinch back errant, long stems to encourage bushier growth.
