Plant Common Name

Cascadia Pink Petunia, Petunia, Trailing Grandiflora Petunia

General Description

Petunias are an old-fashioned garden favorite. These sunny, heat-loving annuals, or tender perennials, were one of the first ornamentals to be hybridized for the bedding plant market in the 1950s. Petunia species are of North, Central or South American origin.

Petunia ‘Cascadia Pink’ offers improved selections with a low, spreading growth habit and flowers produced all along the trailing stems. They are heavy blooming and covered with medium-sized, open, tubular to funnel-shaped flowers. The flowers are deep, rose pink with yellow striped throats. Petunias have medium to fine, oval, green leaves and stems that are fuzzy, sticky to the touch and strongly scented.

Petunia ‘Cascadia’ is a trailing type. The low-growing, spreading plants are covered with countless, blooms early in the season and for an extended period. Cascadia petunias are good for ground cover, beds, hanging baskets, window boxes and tubs.

Petunias are as easy to grow as they are pretty. They require full sun and grow best in fertile soil with good drainage. Petunias are a good choice for fall and winter planting in warm, frost-free zones. Plant them after the danger of frost has past in cooler locations. They bloom best with regular fertilization. Plant them anywhere where brilliant, long-lasting color is needed; petunias thrive in containers and will brighten the edge of any bed.
