Description

Imagine these spilling over a large planter or hanging basket!

Developed by the same Italian breeder responsible for Bolero Pansies!

Winner of the 2005 Mail Order Gardening Association Green Thumb Award!

Have you ever seen a Petunia as richly colored and magnificently beautiful as this? Dolcissima Flambe has already taken Europe by storm and is certain to become a favorite here, too! Terrific for containers of all kinds as well as the garden, its award-winning habit and colors will transform your summer garden!

The flowers are so brilliant, 3 inches wide and suffused with rose, lemon, and cream tones over white. Merrily ruffled and held wide open all over neat, compact little 8- to 10-inch high and wide plants, they radiate soft pastel tones all summer long. The perfect Mother's Day gift . . . that will keep blooming right into autumn in mild climates!

Flambe has already won the 2005 Fleuroselect Quality Mark -- Europe's top honor for seeds -- and another member of the exciting Dolcissima series, elegant Limoncello, has won as well. There is simply no stopping these amazing new varieties!

Flambe is a multiflora-type Petunia, with masses and masses of blooms and no two exactly alike. The ideal choice for windowboxes, hanging baskets, flowerpots, and the annual border, it thrives in plenty of sunshine and well-drained, rich garden soil. Give it a regular feed to keep the color coming, and you'll enjoy this remarkable blend of colors for months!

In addition to award-winning Limoncello, the Dolcissima series includes hot-pink Fragolino.

But whatever you do, DO try these thrilling new Italian Petunias this season! You're going to love them. Pkt is 50 seeds.

Pretty, but color doesnt pop as much as the pics

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Maybe its still to early to tell (or my warm weather in South Florida may have everything to do with it) but mine seem dull in color by comparison to the photo. They are still pretty but paler than the pic. Maybe its just the first few blooms or the heat but I'll keep hoping for brighter more colorful blooms. Overall still an easy and trusty plant for your garden.

Extraordinary

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I have grown Flambe and Fragolino for several years. Nothing like them! I also sell at local Farmers' Markets where the hanging petunia basket competition is fierce. My customers are thrilled as no one else grows these (a mystery!) and no other petunias have such rich, incredible colors. They hold up all season long--in my opinion better than the waves and other basket types.

beautiful

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

A few years ago I planted these AND the Fragolino "sister". They are gorgeous - there's nothing else like them. This year I only have these - still gorgeous. I have them planted in pots with some coral colored geraniums and moonvine. LOVE! Next year I'm also getting the Fragolinos as well to have a little more color pop. Maybe I'll even try the Horizon yellow petunia with them. Very delicate looking...
