Ramblin' Nu Blue Petunia
Petunia x hybrida. These wonderful trailing Petunia are specially bred to grow only 10 inches high, and spread 2-3 feet. Easy to grow and beautiful in the garden, containers or hanging baskets. In addition to Ramblin' Red (the best trailing red petunia from seed), we also offer 3 colors, and a mix made up of burgundy, lilac and blue. 70-80 days to flower. 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.
