Petunias add tons of color in planters, hanging baskets, and garden beds. They are incredibly versatile and can be used in many ways. Here are some ideas:
 
Planters
 
 
Petunias spread easily and produce a breathtaking show of color. From pink to red, yellow, white, blue and purple, there is a petunia color for almost any sunny garden space.
 
One of the most popular ways to feature petunias is to create gorgeous containers filled with a mix of cascading petunias, like the Easy Wave® series. You can mix contrasting colors, stick with one color or choose complementary shades – it’s all up to you. Then place your blooming super planters in doorways, on porches and on patios in the sun.
 
 
Hanging Baskets
 
 
Adding petunias to hanging baskets will give you a bold display of color all Summer long. Start with Shock Wave® Petunias, and pair with geraniums, dichondra, lobelia or bright yellow African daisies to add texture and excitement.
 
Landscapes
 
 
Tidal Wave® and Wave® petunias make the perfect garden edge for your backyard. They’ll keep blooming without much intervention from you: a very low-maintenance landscaping idea for busy people who don’t have time to do too much work. Of course, it helps if you take an hour or so every week to deadhead. You’ll encourage reblooming and keep your plants looking full and fresh.
