Limbo Blue Petunia Flowers

Limbo Blue Petunia Flowers

Extra large flowers with a unique, dwarfed plant habit. Bounces back in wind and rain and reaches 6-8” in height. Grandiflora type. Attracts Hummingbirds! Alluringly fragrant. Limbo presents the next generation of the popular Limbo petunia series. This genetically dwarf grandiflora series really pays for itself in production without sacrificing appearance and performance. Large, grandiflora-sized blue flowers cover a dwarf plant habit, and when other petunias stretch, the Limbos will not.
Limbo Blue Petunia’s genetically dwarf nature translates to no growth regulators in production, and the plant habit still remains lower to the ground in garden beds, presenting a neat and tidy appearance. Height: 8-10″, 15-18″ spread.
Petunia Flowers are bright and lively, bloom from spring until frost, and scent the air with lovely fragrance. Best of all, they’re amazingly easy to grow, both in the garden and in containers.Petunias are one of the most popular garden bedding flowers. They have wide trumpet shaped flowers and branching foliage that is hairy and somewhat sticky. Petunias are prolific bloomers, although some forms require deadheading to keep them going. However most varieties will bloom throughout the summer, except in extreme heat. You can now find petunias in just about every color but true blue and with growing habits that mound in borders or trail down containers.
Petunias are annual flowering plants, native to Argentina. Within the petunia family there is great variety: single and double blooms, ruffled or smooth petals, striped, veined or solid colors, mounding and cascading habits and even some fragrance. Most of the petunias sold today are hybrids, developed for specific design purposes. Petunias are versatile annuals, providing a bounty of bright color from early summer until fall. They come in four main categories that span the color spectrum, including large grandifloras, compact multifloras, miniature millifloras, and spreading, trailing forms. Although big, cascading grandifloras are the traditional choice for containers, any type will work and adapt to life on a patio or balcony.
