Enjoy thousands of gorgeous flowers from spring to autumn. The white petals have a lovely, defined lilac star at their centre. The trailing stems thrill as they spill from pots or baskets. They are lovely along garden paths or hot garden spots.
Perennial Petunias have the advantage of lasting a few years in the garden, where their annual counterparts were quite short lived. They have excellent cold tolerance, and are renowned for being tough and producing weather resistant blooms. They make great fillers as your summer plants begin to fade as they continue to frost.

Perennial Petunias add bright pops of colour to gardens, pots or hanging baskets and have a nice, dense, mounding form with gently trailing stems. The flowers can bloom from spring to autumn, even longer in warmer climates.

Plant your Perennial Petunia into moderately fertile to humus rich, well drained soil. Add a diluted liquid fertiliser fortnightly, or a slow release pelletised version every couple of months to keep them blooming at their best. A light prune after the first flush will help prolong flowering. In pots and hanging baskets it is a good idea to use a good quality potting mix. In areas of hard frost they may have to be treated as annuals, they survive outdoors here in the hills with a bit of winter damage but shoot back quickly as the weather warms.
