Earlier and tougher than the Original Waves

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 window box awash with bold color that just kept coming and coming. Well, now there is an even better Wave—the new Shock Wave series of earlier, 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 1½- to 2-inch blooms simply blanket the plant beginning in mid-spring, weeks before other spreading petunias are even setting buds. Reaching 7 to 10 inches high with a very full, mounding shade, these plants spread 20 to 30 inches 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.

Coral Crush grows and flowers at exactly the same time as Pink Shades, and also makes a good companion to new Red and Purple. There's even an economical collection of all 6 separate colors, perfect for a large planting or to share the wealth with friends.

This seed comes as a "pellet". "Pelleted" seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.

Beautiful color!

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The color intrigued me so I had to purchase. I was not disappointed in the least! Great germination and beautiful plants with brightly colored blossoms. More of a rosy coral, not true coral, but still pleased. Different then the pinks and rose colored petunias. Will grow again.

Great products

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

Have planted their Whopper tomato plants for years and they're our favorites. Also your petunias or what used to be called petunias are lovely. I used to have a greenhouse and planted your petunia seeds each spring and our hanging baskets were incomparable. Now I buy your plants. Thanks for all your fine work.
