Tidal Wave™ Silver Petunia Annual Plant
The most versatile Petunia ever grown!
The blooms range from 2? to 4 inches across, and some are deeply blushed with purple while others are nearly pure white. The silver tone is utterly unique, complementing other spreading Petunias very well (try it in a windowbox with sister Hot Pink) and making a nice companion both to light- and dark-toned designs. These blooms aren't shrinking violets, either -- they stand up to summer storms beautifully, bouncing back from rain and wind without turning a petal! Expect a long summer season of bloom in the sunny yard or patio.
The plant itself is as much of a star as its flowers, offering an adaptable habit completely unlike other Petunias'. Spaced closely together, the plants form an upright mound or even a low hedge 16 to 22 inches tall and anywhere from 2½ to 5 feet wide, drenched with silvery blooms and utterly charming. Set against a trellis and given a little help to get started, it forms a floriferous climber. Widely spaced in bed or border, it creeps along as a lovely ground cover. And then there's its "traditional" use as a trailing Petunia in baskets, planters, and other containers!
Tidal Wave® Silver is a 2002 All America Selection winner, and we predict it will be the spreading Petunia of choice for gardeners looking for something a little distinctive in the garden. It is superbly Botrytis-resistant (which is enough to convince us, even without any other merits, that we want it!) and very long-blooming. In short, a highly adaptable, vigorous, gorgeous Petunia you really should try! Plant in full sun, feed and water it well all season, and you will be rewarded with masses upon masses of moonlight-bright blooms!
