Petunias (Petunia spp.) are perfect for brightening up any garden. Their beautiful blooms come in a variety of colors, from pale pink to bright red. Petunias are a hardy and versatile flower, able to grow in a range of soil conditions. They prefer full sun, and need regular watering and fertilizing to stay healthy. Petunias thrive well in zones 9 through 11.
One of the best aspects of petunias is that they are easy to care for. Deadheading the spent blooms will help to promote new growth and more flowers. Petunias have a long flowering season, and with proper care, they will reward you with a bright display all summer long.
Since petunias have pretty shallow root systems, it’s important to keep them watered frequently. However, while they have shallow roots, they can still suffer root rot from over-watering, so beware of the yellowing of leaves. Plant your petunias in your garden after your last spring frost date and when the soil is workable. If your petunias become leggy from the summer heat, simply prune them back for a healthy reshaping!
