The ‘Bub­blegum’ petunias from Proven Win­ners are in­ter­na­tional best sell­ers. Per­fect for fill­ing bor­ders or spilling from hang­ing bas­kets, th­ese large and hardy plants quickly form a mass of colour to fill a space up to 1.2 me­tres across, and up to 60cm tall.

In New Zealand with the right care and con­di­tions ‘Bub­blegums’ have been known to last up to 5 years, even in the South Is­land, as long as they are pro­tected from win­ter frost. Per­fectly happy in the heat of summer, they ‘self clean’ so there is no need to spend time dead-head­ing.

Bub­blegum petunias are avail­able in four shades: ‘Blush’ (pale pink to white), ‘Fuch­sia’ (deep cerise pink), ‘Pink’ and ‘White’.

This year’s first ever New Zealand Flower and Gar­den Show will show­case ‘Bub­blegum’ petunias in a spec­tac­u­lar dis­play. By pick­ing up some of th­ese to cre­ate a pink state­ment in your own gar­den you will be help­ing a very wor­thy cause!

*Dona­tion on petunias sold from Oc­to­ber 1st.
