I’ll miss these petunias. I picked up a few huge baskets of flowers at the end of the selling season when they were dried out and kind of seedy. I had no idea where I’d put them, and this huge basket of tiny light and dark pink petunias ended up “temporarily” in the old purple wicker chair at the end of my front porch. It took up the seat and covered the entire chair, trailing to the ground, reaching at least 4 feet across. It had wonderful morning sun then shade the rest of the day and thrived, covered with fresh flowers all summer. Last week it slowed down and the flowers lost their sweet scent. This week there isn’t a single flower, and though the soil is moist as always the plant is wilting. Oh, well, we had a good summer.
Below is a side view, but I had no good place to get a good front view to see how huge this plant was. I take plants in for the winter, so I’ll cut this one back and give it new soil, then hang it in the basement and lightly water it. Possibly it will come back, but compared to the sun and warmth it got at the greenhouse it came from I know I won’t get that again.. . . . . . .
