Petunia's

Saw these petunia's at the garden centre the other day and I was impressed at their lovely mottled colours.  I had never seen these types before.

 If I had to name these petunia's I would name them Northern Lights.

Although I like the look of petunia's I find them hard work with all the deheading you have to do.  Also they tend to be "sticky" when you deadhead them I find?

Ooh, somebody else who isn't totally enthusiastic about petunias! I'm with you all the way on both the pretty looks and the slightly yucky dead heading.

I agree, dead-heading can be a "sticky" proposition-- those purple ones are the most dramatic...hugs, Julierose

I've never seen those either, how beautiful. :)

Those are beautiful but I refuse to buy petunias, It is so hot here and they require twice daily watering to keep them at their best. Not something I am willing to do.

They are beautiful. I think I want to look for them.

So nice you are out buying for the summer. I haven't had the courage to purchase any yet, except for some pansies. It's still too cold here. Can't wait to get some tomato plants started.

I like petunias but, like you, find them much too much like hard work and I dislike that 'stickiness' too.
