A Yearly Treat
QueensGardener from NY wrote on July 20, 2016

I love the variations in purple colors-dark, medium, light-all on one plant!! I took one star away because the germination rate is a little unpredictable. It's worth the trouble and cost because once it takes off it's a tough little blooming machine all summer long.

The BEST petunias for homes hear the beach!

I wish I could edit my previous review... My last review of these petunias was 3 stars. My only gripe being the lack of color variation... they were prolific and hearty and had a great germination rate. However, they all started out deep purple... started is the key word here. I've never had petunias that changed as they grew. They guys, they have changed as they've matured... I can't believe it! The "denim shades" are now completely present... I wish they would state in the description that the flower colors morph as they plants mature... because I would have never written the 3 star review... These flowers are great... especially for our ocean side hanging baskets... they are the epitome of what I expect of nautical hanging baskets. Perfect. I will buy these seeds over and over and over again!

Not too bad... except for the color.
An oceanside gardener from NJ wrote on June 07, 2016

First the positives... 1) I got three packets of these seeds to start indoors and there was about a 80% germination rate, not bad at all. 2) The plants are vigorous for sure, both vegetation wise as well as flower wise. So why only three stars? Because of the one negative... ALL of the flowers are deep purple... beautiful for sure... but the whole point of getting these was for a beautiful variation that was promised. We were really looking forward to the purple/blue variation... but, alas, we just got purple... really nice purple.... but just purple.

I sowed these indoors in early February and they were blooming by the beginning of April. Out of 30 seeds I only successfully raised 13 for outdoor planting, but it was also my first year sowing indoors. The seeds seemed pricey, but after seeing the prices in the store they were totally worth it. Mine could already easily qualify as the 1 quart size you would find at the nursery.
