The garden petunia is one of the most compelling bedding varieties when it comes to versatility and presentation. Growers and gardeners alike can choose from a wide range of flower types and plant habits. It is also one those rare annuals that perform well in the middle of a hot summer, yet will also tolerate a slight frost as the weather cools down. Most petunias are ready from sow to transplant in about 10-12 weeks, and are relatively easy to germinate and grow on into transplants or bedding plants. Whether you prefer the majestic blooms of grandiflora singles, the fancy appearance of doubles, or the smaller blooming but prolific multifloras, there is a petunia available to accommodate just about every taste!
