IN THE PINK...
This spring one of New Zealand’s favourite Petunias will contribute to a cause close to our hearts. For every Petunia ‘Bubblegum’ sold the Proven Winners group will donate 50 cents to Breast Cancer Foundation*.
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.
