Tidal Wave Silver Petunias have light silvery-purple blooms that, despite their pale color, put on a show in the garden! Tidal Wave Petunias feature an outstanding, shrublike shape that holds its form all season. The plants first grow outward, then up, and finally in both directions to form a super-full shape. Look for additional height compared to other Wave Petunias plus a great habit all season long. Low maintenance and excellent weather tolerance make them well-suited for landscapes and large containers.
Tidal Wave plants grow according to how you space them. Spaced 12″ apart in the garden, Tidal Wave forms a dense, mounded hedge 16″ to 22″ tall. The stiff stems help to maintain this habit through the season. Put Tidal Wave in a restricted space with additional support such as a chain link fence or bush, and these eye-catching petunias will grow an extra 2′ to 3′ upward like a vine! Spaced a little more loosely (about 18″) in the garden, Tidal Wave petunias perform more like a groundcover, growing just 8 to 10 inches tall and spreading up to 3′ per plant.
