Spreading petunias create a carpet of flowers.

 | 
  • Type: Annual

  • Plant spacing: 10 to 15 inches apart
  • Plant size: 6 to 12 inches tall

A spectacularly different, trailing shape makes spreading petunias a great choice for containers, baskets, window boxes, and seasonal ground cover. Use them in beds, hanging baskets, large containers, balconies, and window boxes. A single plant can spread 3 to 4 feet wide--a great value for color right up until frost. Unlike standard petunias, you don’t need to remove spent blossoms to keep the plants blooming!

Very easy to grow; keep the soil most but well drained. Feed weekly with a liquid fertilizer such as 20-20-20.

Some Bonnie Plants varieties may not be available at your local stores, as we select and sell varieties best suited to the growing conditions in each region.
