Back in March, I made a blog post about my Tidal Wave Silver petunias - see A Tidal Wave of Silver. There I posted about this one petunia plant that I am trialing this year. As you can see from these pictures, this is one experiment gone good! The flowers are covering every inch of plant available and they are beautiful in a silver and purple sort of way.
The plant is at least 5' x 5' in size, and that's without any fertilizing. It has nearly taken over my little area. It's also highly visible from a long distance away.
Next fall I fully intend to plant a number of these. They are still looking great now in late May too. I'll eventually pull them up, but not until they start to fade and look bad. I cannot say enough good about these Tidal Wave petunias. I think they are a wonderful cottage plant and the unusual color of these is quite refreshing and welcome.
