Petunia Shock Wave® Denim
Expect the 1 1/2- to 2-inch flowers in continuous bloom from mid-spring 'til early fall!
The original Wave® Petunias transformed the way American gardeners grew Petunias. Once a bedding plant, suddenly these new spreading types made every hanging basket and windowbox awash with bold color that just kept coming and coming! Well, now there is an even better Wave® -- new Shock Wave® Denim, with more weather-resistant, self-cleaning blooms. They begin much sooner in spring, thanks to less day-length sensitivity, and they keep coming all summer and into fall. And the old blooms obligingly drop from the plants, so no more deadheading for you!
These trumpet-shaped 1 1/2- to 2-inch blooms simply blanket the plant beginning in mid-spring, weeks before other spreading Petunias are even setting buds. Reaching 10 inches high with a very full, mounding shade, these plants spread 2 to 3 feet wide, and keep setting new buds in the center of the plant instead of just at the end of the stems. This way, Shock Wave® Denim looks as full and fresh in August as it did in May!
And Shock Wave® stands up to rain, humidity, heat, and other environmental stresses better than older Waves, bouncing back from summer showers and thunderstorms very well. Compact and very well-branched, it keeps its lush, full habit even in the dog days of August, when every other plant around it wilts at noonday and struggles to keep going.
Now, the one thing Shock Wave® needs for its powerhouse blooms is food, so fertilize this plant a bit more heavily than you normally would to keep those flowers coming. Then settle back and enjoy!
