Petunia x hybrida 'Sparklers'

Half-hardy Annual

  • Fleuroselect Approved Novelty
The first ever star-shaped petunia from seed! A white version of this uniquely-shaped flower was originally sent to us by a customer in 1998. After 10 years of breeding and many generations of selection, the perfect star shape was obtained as well as this fabulous range of colours. Even the foliage of Petunia x hybrid 'Sparklers' is unusual, being pointed rather than rounded. Grow this striking variety in containers or let its spreading stems spill over the edges of hanging baskets for a most unusual summer display. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 35cm (14").

Ideal For:
patio
Flowering Period:

Sow petunias from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Lightly cover the seed with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 21-25C (70-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 10-21 days.


When petunia seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When petunia plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant into well drained soil at a distance of 30cm (12") apart or grow in containers in full sun.

Feed and water petunia plants regularly, particularly during hot, dry periods. Regular deadheading of petunia flowers will encourage further blooms to be produced throughout the summer.
