Glorious Petunias

I have a love of petunias linked to childhood and my mother. She always planted them in our yard along with here white and lavender lilacs. Petunias are a hardy species that require little tending and are very prolific. Placed into hanging baskets they will overflow their container and grow a couple of feet over the edges. They come in countless colors, sizes and variations so they can be very decorative. I love their cheerful appearance.

  1. Petunias are I’m sure the toughest flower on the planet. I’ve grown them here, in the garden. In pots. And in Israel, in full son on the terrace when nothing else could survive. They are my default flower!
