Product Details

Product Details

Our staff fell in love with the floriferous Petunia Tidal Wave® Red Velour. The profuse dark velvety red blooms provide bold color over a long season. Flowers withstand inclement weather, and there’s no deadheading required. A great bedding plant. 'PAS1085269'

Petunias are in the same plant family as Tobacco, Tomatoes, and Potatoes (Solanaceae). While there are some 20 species in the Petunia genus, most varieties familiar to gardeners are complex hybrids of at least two species native to South America. These plants are tender perennials in temperate regions, but because they are winter hardy only in USDA Zones 10-11, those of us in cooler regions grow them as annuals. Petunias tend to have either a bushy or a cascading and spreading habit. The funnel-shaped flowers are beloved by pollinators and come in every color of the rainbow, many with unique markings. Several groups of cultivars are available in the horticulture trade, particularly Grandiflora, Multiflora, Milliflora, and Cascading types. Here at the farm, we find Petunias invaluable in containers, hanging baskets, and window boxes, and they also add nonstop color to garden beds where they make fuss-free ground covers from late spring to hard frost.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

strangers stopped to ask about these

These are head-turning beautiful. Neighbors asked to take clippings, total strangers stopped and asked about them-- I live on a busy street and people really noticed these in particular in a garden full of flowers.

Bouyant red welcome mat

I plant these sun-worshiping beauties in our front-of-the-house garden as an upper border to a bed of blue geranium perennials. As the summer progresses they spread and wrap around the geraniums tentacle-style, and the mix of purple/blue and bright red is rich and harmonious, a cheery welcome mat for summer visitors as they pull up to the house.

Holy cats!!

The petunias were outstanding in 2019 - In 2020, some came up as volunteers (?) and really spread out. We couldn't believe them. We'll be ordering more for hanging baskets this year!

Absolutely Beautiful!

I can't begin to tell you how gorgeous these flowers are. They are growing and spreading just as I hoped. As old buds die off, new ones quickly replace them. They are such a beautiful deep reddish purple. I'd purchase these again and again.

Full sun. Average garden soil. No deadheading (removal of spent blooms) required on our small-flowered varieties. In the South, flowering may slow in mid- to late summer. Shear back plants by half and fertilize for a flush of bloom in fall. Hardy to Zone 8 (10°).
