Indigo Petunias ~ Color Crazy Challenge 2019

Petunias are popular annual flowers in gardens here and in mine. They come in stunning colors and many different varieties. I mainly plant petunias in pots and hanging baskets and they bloom all summer into fall. Lately I collect the seeds each fall and start them indoors for planting outdoors late spring. As a result I have healthy strong and beautiful flowers each year.

While there are numerous complex hybrids of petunias available today, they were formerly divided into two main types. The grandiflora petunias have large showy blooms while the multiflora produce an abundance of smaller blossoms. My favorite  colors are the purples, violets and indigo as well as a pink trailing variety which I have reproduced from seed.
