Shock Wave® Red Petunia Annual Plant
Expect the 1½- to 2-inch flowers in continuous bloom from mid-spring 'til early fall!
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 8 to 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® looks as full and fresh in August as it did in May!
And the Shock Waves® stand 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, they keep their lush, full habit even in the dog days of August, when every other plant around them 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!
Red grows and flowers at exactly the same time as Pink Shades, and also makes a good companion to new Coral Crush and Purple. Pack of 6.
