Plant Features

The Headliner™ Electric Purple Sky Petunia dazzles with its vivid purple blossoms speckled with white polka dots, making it an undeniable focal point in any garden or patio. Notably, it flowers earlier than the Night Sky variety, offering an extended visual treat. This resilient annual is not only a spectacle to behold but also thrives in warmer climates due to its heat tolerance. Its versatility shines through, be it in containers, elegantly draped in hanging baskets, or directly planted in the ground. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned gardener, this easy-to-maintain, mounding-habit flower promises to enliven your outdoor space throughout the season.

Headliner Petunia Plant Care Instructions: For optimal performance, keep your plants well-watered. Choose containers with functioning drain holes as petunias will not tolerate wet feet. Deadhead weekly. PRO TIP: Remove both the spent flower and its stem, snipping it back to where it connects with the main stem. Otherwise, the seed head will develop, and the plant will think it should slow down its flower production. Trimming will help keep your petunias looking fresh all season long.

Here are our favorite methods:

  1. Trim a third of the plant back by a third, this should be done every other week, cycling through the three areas.
  2. Find the longest stems that only have one flower and trim them to the main stem, this method should be done weekly.
  3. The most drastic approach would be to trim back the complete plant by 1/3 every 6 weeks.

Perfect flowers, Terrible habit

After seeing these gorgeous, mesmerising flowers, I was instantly hooked. However, it seems the manufacturers were too preoccupied with the flower and completely forgot about the plant’s growing habit. After 3 weeks, these petunias were super leggy (even after correct pruning) and after two months they are a leggy awful eyesore. Maybe it’s too much for them here (full sun 9A) and they’ll do better in the fall, but I wouldn’t purchase them again even though I love the flowers so much.
