Once we are past the middle of April, and our ground is dry enough to work, we want to plant our Bubblegum petunias. We have found that these flowers perform best if they experience several frosts. The plants are green, so we inter plant with pansies for immediate color. This frost tolerance allows us to plant our beds before our spring rush, and Bubblegums have consistently outperformed any other petunia we have ever tried. They need no deadheading, as is standard with Supertunias and spreading petunias, and will bloom long into fall after other summer flowers have given up. One Bubblegum petunia can grow to four or six feet wide!
