Description

Kentucky Old Fashioned Petunia

A mix of clear tones of rose, burgundy, purple, and light and dark lavender fragrant flowers, including bi-color, on sprawling plants that bloom all season until frost.  Much reward for little effort. This heirloom petunia is the one everyone remembers for its incredible scent.

HISTORY

It is believed that the petunia originated in South America and the vast majority planted today are the result of crosses of twelve South American natives. Its name is derived from “Petun”, the Brazilian name for tobacco, to which it is closely related.

Growing Tip

Self-sows, but you will get earlier flowers by starting the seeds indoors.

    Lots of flowers

    Posted by V B, IL on Jul 1st 2017

    I grew these back in 2005 or 2004 and there were plenty of flowers, but weirdly they were all white. Maybe I didn't plant enough. Haven't tried them again.
