Red Easy Wave Petunia

The foliage is very typical of the wave series, 8-10 inch long stems that can spread to 2-3 feet. The color is pretty and changes subtly. Initially the blooms open a bright deep red but then gradually shift to a rosier hue. Plants were started in early March and transplanted in mid May. For the first 3 weeks, the baskets looked scrawny compared to those purchases at nurseries, but thereafter they were just as good, maybe better, and at literally a tenth the cost.
