This Weeks Plant of the Week: Petunia
by Christina Timm
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.
The pro to having a Petunia in your garden is the overall lush blooms and foliage all summer long. When properly fed and cared for this plant will offer bloom after bloom of color. With all these blooms it is recommended to keep up on deadheading this plant. This will ensure the overall health and continued new growth.
