About the Petunia

The Petunia is a summer annual in Minnesota. It’s the perfect summer flower because it tolerates full sun and our intense summer heat. They have a mounding growing habit that increases the volume in a container garden or ground bed. When placed in a container garden, like a patio pot or hanging basket, the Petunia will trail offering a cascade of vivid color that will spill over the edge of a container.
