When I was growing up, my grandmother introduced me to purple grandiflora petunias, which she brought home from the nursery by the dozens to brighten up her summer garden. They were the first flowers I ever planted, and I have been madly in love with petunias ever since. 

Today, there are even more reasons to fall in love with them because there are so many more choices. From compact types with dime-size blooms to spreading or trailing varieties that reach to 4 feet, they now come in a wide variety of colors, sizes, petal profiles, and growth habits. This new-generation has also been bred to outperform their predecessors, producing nonstop blooms all summer long on sturdier, easy-to-grow plants. 

REMEMBER: Millette Photomedia has many pictures of petunias on the website, and many other types of plants.

BASICS

Are petunias perennials or annuals?

Although they are actually classified as tender perennials, they won't tolerate frost so they are commonly grown as annuals in most climates.

Sun or shade? Full sun

Bloom time: Summer

Color and characteristics:

You can find them in just about any color, even black, as well as striped, veined, and speckled patterns. The variety of flower forms is also impressive, ranging from petite to palm-sized in single or double blooms with ruffled, fringed, or smooth edges.
