The white petals of Perennial Petunia ‘Hot Lips’ have a fabulous, magenta pattern. In fact, with a little imagination, the pink almost look like lips!
Perennial Petunias are quick to grow and establish and will be covered in flowers for months.
Perennial Petunias have the advantage of lasting a few years in the garden as opposed to their annual counterparts. They have excellent cold tolerance, are renowned for being tough with weatherproof blooms.
Perennial Petunias add a bright pop of colour to gardens, pots or hanging baskets. They have a nice, dense, upright mounding form. The flowers can bloom from spring to autumn, longer in warmer climates.
Plant your Perennial Petunia into moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Add a diluted liquid fertiliser fortnightly, or some slow release pellets every couple of months to keep them blooming at their best. A light prune will also help prolong flowering. In pots and hanging baskets use a good quality potting mix.
