Both an All-America Selection and European Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner for 2002–and no wonder! Plants spread 1.2 m (4 ft) in a season and are covered with 5 cm (2 in) lavender blooms, while maintaining low plant height of 18 cm (7 in). Literally a â€œTidal Waveâ€� of colour! Use as ground cover or in containers.Â Wave petunias require no deadheading. As the flowers wilt and dry up, they fall naturally from the plant, and new blooms soon takes their place.
Start seed 8 to 10 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting outside. Press seed into soil as light will aid germination. Germinates best at 24 C (75 F) in 5-15 days. Grow plants to budding stage at 12 C (55 F). Petunias lose dwarf growth habit if grown above that temperature. Fertilize every 2 weeks with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants. Garden spacing 20-30 cm (8-12 in) apart. Pinch old flowers off to encourage more bloom.
NOTE: Seed is pelletized. During shipping material can be crushed. The seed is very fine and will be alright. Just plant all the powdery material within the tube and the seed will germinate.
