Shock Wave® Volt Mix Petunia Seeds

(P) Pkt of 10 seeds
Item #51841-PK-P1


Patriotic color for 5 months or more, flowers continuously over 3 seasons

The Original Wave® Petunias transformed the way American gardeners grew petunias. Once a bedding plant, suddenly these spreading types made every hanging basket and window box 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 Shock Wave® Volt Mix Petunia Seeds is one of its most brilliant combinations, offering patriotic color long before and after the Fourth of July.

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. These red, white, and blue blooms all open at the same time, so you can enjoy a tricolored mix for months with Shock Wave® Volt Mix Petunia Seeds.

These trumpet-shaped 1½- to 2-inch blooms simply blanket the Shock Wave® Volt Mix Petunia 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® Volt Mix Petunia looks as full and fresh in August as it did in May.

And this Shock Wave® Volt Mix Petunia stands 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® Volt Mix Petunia Seeds need 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.

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.

Poor germination 4/10 seeds germinated. I used a heat mat, and did everything as directed on the packaging.
