Sweet notes of hyacinth, honey, and rose
All-America Selections (AAS) Winner 2017
Only one thing could make a spreading petunia even more appealing, and this one’s got it: FRAGRANCE! Notes of sweet honey, roses, and hyacinths combine to create the scent of these indigo blooms, which arise by the thousand over a season that spans many months. The fragrance is noticeable all day, but really intensifies in late afternoon and evening, making Evening Scentsation? Petunia the perfect choice for balcony, deck, patio, or any part of the garden where guests gather for entertaining.
Evening Scentsation? Petunia has already won an All-America Selection Award, and we expect more honors to follow. This is a breeding breakthrough extraordinaire, a plant with all the merits of, say, the Wave? series, plus a sweet scent and a really deep, intense flower color. What could be better.
The blooms begin opening in late spring in most climates, continue through summer, and go right up to frost. They average 2? inches wide and are a siren call to all butterflies in the neighborhood. Evening Scentsation? Petunia is a multiflora, very tolerant of rain and excessive sun and heat. The habit is both mounding and spreading, reaching 5 to 8 inches high and trailing nearly 36 inches long from baskets and planters. Or, if set into the garden about a foot apart, the plants will fill in available space with a nicely mounded size and more blooms than you can imagine.
Evening Scentsation? Petunia is easy to grow from our convenient pelleted seed, which should be started indoors 5 to 6 weeks before transplant to the early-spring garden. Set out plants when all danger of frost is past. The plant will begin blooming 10 to 12 weeks after sowing. It is magnificent in hanging baskets, window boxes, and large containers, as well as an unrivaled ground cover for bright sun. Stupendous.
This seed comes as a “pellet”. “Pelleted” seeds are small seeds that have been clay-coated to make them larger and more uniform in size and shape, making them easier to handle when planting.
