Yellow Petunia

*We no longer grow this item, but feel free to peruse the information.

Surprise Yellow Petunias have a light yellow band around the outer edges of the petals and darker yellow from mid petal running down into the throat. Surprise Petunias have a trailing habit that is great for baskets or containers. The foliage stays close to the ground eliminating the need for plants to be placed in front of them. Chose wisely when planting, Surprise Petunias are pretty vigorous and could overtake less aggressive plants. Like most petunias, keep Surprise Petunias evenly moist but not wet.

Petunias have trumpet-shaped flowers that are 2 to 3 inches across. They come in a wide variety of bright colors and may be solid in color or edged, striped, or starred with a contrasting color. Petunias do well from early spring until late fall. In the Fall, Petunias are excellent plants to fill in when you have to replace your summer plants in early September, and it is still too warm for Pansies. Petunias are able to handle the warmer weather of late summer/early fall and the cooler weather of mid- to late fall. They will survive light frosts, but the blooms will turn brown. A hard frost will kill most varieties of petunias.
