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, there is an even better Wave® -- the Shock Wave® series of earlier, more weather-resistant, self-cleaning blooms. And Spark Mix is one of its most brilliant combinations, offering flower-child shades of pink, purple, blue, and cream for months on end!

Shock Waves® start blooming 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! The 3 colors in this mix -- Coconut, Denim, and Pink Shades -- all open at the same time, so you can enjoy a tricolored mix for months.

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 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.

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! Packet is 10 pelleted seeds.
