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.

Starting Indoors: Start indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost. Provide 70-80ºF soil temperature. Transplant after the last frost, 12-28" apart. Water seedlings regularly until established.

Care: When grown in containers petunias need to be fertilized and watered regularly. This will keep the plants blooming all season long. During the heat of summer, they will need to be watered a few times a week. When growing petunias in the ground amend the soil with compost before planting.  Apply a liquid fertilizer every 1-2 weeks or use a time-release fertilizer at planting time.

    First Time Ordered from Pinetree

    This was the first year I ordered from Pinetree Garden Seeds, and I most certainly will do so again. Everything I have purchased is doing well. It was easy to find what I wanted on the website, and with the COVID-19 pandemic considered, my orders were filled as promptly as I would expect under the circumstances. In relation specifically to the Red Easy Wave petunias, they germinated well and look terrific in our hanging pots. All of the petunias I ordered do
