Hot New Petunia Colors for 2013
The Wave Crew  Wave Petunias | Cool Wave Pansies

Happy New Year, Wave Fans! While it may be cold and wintery this month, Wave Petunias has hot new colors to look forward to this spring. We hope you like PINK because these plants take that color to a whole new level!

First let’s look at new Shock Wave Deep Purple Petunia. Many lucky Wave Fans had a chance to trial these beauties in their gardens last year. The blooms have a deep, dark throat and vibrant petals. It’s simply electric! Especially when paired with other colors. For instance, mixing with white or a softer pink can perk up your containers like a sweet sugar rush, as you see here in this Shock Wave Power Mix.

Another new introduction this spring is an improvement on our Shock Wave Rose Petunia. Our Wave Experts have bred a more intense color to really make your garden stand out. The Shock Wave blooms are smaller than our other Wave petunias, but new Rose packs a punch.

We’ve mixed it here with our popular Shock Wave Coral Crush and Shock Wave Red for a new Shock Wave Amp Mix. This hot blend of colors adds a bit of energy to any sunny space.

Watch for more news on Wave Petunias. Be sure you’ve signed up for our monthly e-newsletter, where we share tips, helpful videos, and announce our special giveaways to Wave Fans!
We hope you enjoy these latest colors for the Shock Wave line. Look for them at your favorite garden center this spring.

Well here in West Virginia it's a cool 10 degrees but last night's snow did melt - how I don't know. Now on to my favorite Petunias and my favorite color is deep purple so I hope my Lowe's store will carry this color! Gosh can't wait for spring!

Is it o k to place peat moss around petunia after planting to help retain water to help keep waves petunia moist. Please advise me at Thanking you in advance. I really like the waves and always purchased the purple. I have the prettiest flower garden on my street.
