I've grown rather fond of petunias in the past few years. I'm not sure whether I finally reached an age where I can appreciate these hardy plants or if their bright color appeals more to aging eyes. Whatever the reason, I find I enjoy both the abundant blooms and delicate scent of petunias in my garden.
Although I wouldn't dream of giving up my pink/rose petunias, when I saw these purple climbing petunias I decided to give them a try. They were produced by Thompson and Morgan, but I purchased my seeds from Pine Tree Seeds, a Maine seed company.
If you love petunias and are looking for something a little different this year, consider climbing petunias. I'm not sure they are really that different from WAVE petunias, as I would imagine you could grow WAVE Petunias on a trellis instead of trailing from a hanging basket, but I figured it was worth a few dollars to find out.
I started my seeds yesterday, so it will be a while before I will know just how these climbing petunias differ from trailing petunias, but sometimes the waiting is half the fun.
Until next time . . . HAPPY GARDENING!
