Petunias, with their vibrant and delicate blooms, are a popular choice for garden enthusiasts and flower lovers. Petunia flowers come in a variety of colors, including shades of purple, pink, red, white, and even bi-colored variations. Their trumpet-like shape and ruffled petals make them visually appealing. Petunias exhibit both trailing and upright growth habits. Trailing varieties are ideal for hanging baskets and ground cover, while upright ones are suited for borders and containers.
How To Care
Light: They thrive in full sunlight, requiring at least 6 hours of direct light daily.
Water: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water at the base to avoid fungal issues.
Fertilizer: Use a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer for best results.
Temperature: Petunias are warm-weather annuals that thrive in temperatures between 55 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Potting: Petunias need a pot with good drainage. Look for a pot with drainage holes in the bottom. The size of the pot will depend on the type of petunias you are growing.
Pruning: Trim leggy or overgrown branches to maintain a compact shape.
