Your Daily Dose of Natural Beauty, courtesy Advertiser Zenith Holland Nursery – Cosmically cool Night Sky Petunias are versatile eye catchers:
Around here we get to enjoy petunias from spring to fall and usually only as an annual, though they are actually a perennial when nurtured in the right climate. Alas, our Pacific Northwest conditions will not bring them back each year, which the optimistic garden can embrace as an opportunity to enjoy the wide range of colors, patterns and size of these garden ornaments each year. Today’s feature brings the dazzle of a starry sky to hanging baskets, planters and flower beds of all sorts. “Night Sky” is aptly named with a a background of deep purple/blue splashed with “constellations” of glowing white, resembling stars in the heavens. They are a welcome sprinkle of visual interest when placed among their less showy solid color siblings.
Petunias are very easy to grow, requiring only weekly waterings. To maximize their beauty and bloom, a monthly feeding and removal of spent blooms will keep them chugging along through the summer delivering colorful delight in your ornamental displays. Proper care will bring a reward of abundant cascading color to enjoy from May to October.
