Try to say that 10 times in a row…real fast! lol
*I don’t think I was clear when I said the blooms fall off after only one day. I should have added that they bloom EVERY DAY! Every day we see at least a dozen new blooms. It’s fun to get up in the morning and be surprised with how many new blooms are on these 2 plants. Old blooms fall off…new blooms pop out…every day!
When we redid our landscaping in the Spring, I had my heart set on a big hanging basket of purple petunias. But they are not common here in Florida and the man at the nursery suggested Mexican Petunias.
So we bought two plants for two corners of our courtyard.
we have a little sprinkler to water them when it gets dry
We have enjoyed watching them grow AND seeing them bloom.
The blooms only last ONE DAY and then they fall off.
The most we’ve had so far are 18 blooms all at once.
These blooms dried onto the floor of the courtyard.
Something fun to enjoy every day. We’ve seen bumble bees working them over several times and even a hummingbird once. They attract butterflies too.
