In a true feast for the eyes, the Supertunia® Honey Petunia changes color as the season progresses, cycling through shades of yellow, salmon, gold and red. Like all of the petunias in this series, it is an enthusiastic garden participant, blooming profusely where it is planted and staying joyously healthy without much tending. With such a nice array of colors, there's no need to mix it with other flowers - simply sit back and enjoy the show! Petunia flowers produce a sugary nectar that hummingbirds and butterflies love.
Companion Planting: Gaura, Salvia, Lobelia, Snapdragon, Coleus
Supertunia® Honey™ 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. Trimming will help keep your petunias looking fresh all season long.
Here are our favorite methods:
- Trim a third of the plant back by a third, this should be done every other week, cycling through the three areas.
- Find the longest stems that only have one flower and trim them to the main stem, this method should be done weekly.
- The most drastic approach would be to trim back the complete plant by 1/3 every 6 weeks.
