Red and white. And many shades and combinations between.

Are you seeking a readily available annual to give color to your garden from June (May in some places) until October? Take you pick of colors at any store selling garden supplies. They’re likely to have petunias by the six pack or the flat.

Are you short on space? They do well in planters and hanging baskets. Simply place in a sunny spot, mind the water, and enjoy. Pinch off exhausted blossoms to encourage more blooms.

Petunia also furnished the name for a popular pig, you remember, Porky’s Pal, Partner and at times the brains of the episode. (Okay I showed my age again. Do they ever show Porky Pig cartoons?)
