OLD-FASHIONED VINING PETUNIA (Petunia multiflora) is an AROMATIC single petunia common in mid-western gardens a century ago. A mixture of fragrant pink, white, lavender and purple flowers bloom from June until frost and sometimes beyond. STRONG plants (very heat tolerant - they stood up without wilting in the sustained triple digit heat wave of 2007) have a trailing 2-3' stem that works nicely in hanging baskets and borders. They will populate your pots or borders lushly. These beauties are a winner in my book! Self-seeding annual (if you bring your pots into a protected area over the winter); perennial zones 9-11. 50 seeds.
GROWING TIP: Sow seeds indoors on the surface of the soil 8-10 weeks before last frost. Seeds will germinate in 7-10 days. Plant out after the danger of frost has passed in late spring. Prefers full sun to partial shade and average soil. At the end of the season, bag your hanging baskets to collect seed for the following year.
