Last year we introduced you to Night Sky, this year, say hello to Pink Sky!
The white splashes on a background of deep pink creates an incredibly eye-catching contrast. Each bloom is uniquely patterned; no two are alike.
The reason for this that the density and size of the white speckles vary depending on temperature, light and soil PH. Warmer weather brings out more of the pink background, whereas cooler weather will bring out more of the white splashes. To achieve the perfect balance of pink to white, it's best to have warm days and cool nights.
Remember to deadhead, meaning removing the dying flowers from the Petunia. Make sure to remove the base of the flower to include seed removal. Petunias allowed to go to seed will slow or stop blooming.
You may notice by midsummer, Pink Sky, like all Petunias, will begin to get a bit leggy and the stems will start to produce fewer blooms. Cut each stem back by half to rejuvenate the plant. After a short break, they will return to flowering.
