Petunia-Spreading

  • Plant Type: Annual
  • Sun: Full Sun
  • Plant Size: 6-12 inches tall

Spreading petunias offer an exciting addition to your garden or landscape. Tight growth, a spectacular trailing habit, and easy no-pinch maintenance make these a terrific choice for containers, baskets, window boxes, and seasonal ground cover. Best of all, they're very easy to grow.

Plant Spacing: 10 to 15 inches apart.

Secrets to Success »

These petunias are easy to grow. Plant in fertile soil with good drainage. No need to pinch faded blooms, but keep them well-fed with liquid fertilizer weekly.

Use »

The winding, trailing effect is perfect for containers, patio pots, or landscape beds. Wave varieties are the first petunias to be suitable for groundcover; low growing at only 4 to 6 inches high, they keep a tidy look in beds.
