Here at Wave, we’re bringing you how-to’s that inspire you to create something new right from the comfort of your patio. Check out how to put together an ombre planter with the beauty of Wave® Petunias. Get this trendy and impressive look with the help of White, Lavender Sky Blue, and Blue Easy Wave® Petunias.
Step 1 — Pick your planter
This decorative planter is meant for multiple plants, perfect for the look we’re going for. You can also achieve this ombre color combo by using a long, rectangular planter.
Step 2 — Choose your Wave Petunias
Here we have three Easy Wave Petunias to create our ombre effect. Our picks, from left to right, are to start out with White, Lavender Sky Blue and finally, Blue. This gradient choice from light to dark will build that gorgeous ombre effect.
Step 3—Water your plants
After arranging your flowers in the planter, add your soil, and make sure to water your plants thoroughly. Since your plants are in a planter, they’ll need to be watered more frequently than if they were in a garden bed or landscape. You can even add a slow-release or granular fertilizer or schedule a regular routine of liquid fertilizer (every 2 weeks).
Step 4—Enjoy your Wave creation!
Your beautiful ombre petunia planter is complete. Sit back, relax and enjoy these fast-growing, gorgeous blooms as they make a fashion-forward statement in your own backyard.
This triple planter makes it easy to combine these plants, but you can also use this design in your hanging baskets and large containers to maximize your garden style. And if the color pink ties better into your garden theme, try this step-by-step project with Easy Wave White, Pink and Pink Passion Petunias.
