Magenta Petunia (4-Pack)
Add a blaze of color to your garden with the classic good looks of Bonnie Plants® Magenta Petunia. A terrific addition for pollinator gardens, Magenta Petunia is a must-have for hummingbird and butterfly lovers. Pretty trumpet-shaped magenta flowers with white and pink accents invite hummingbirds and butterflies to sip sweet nectar. Plant them in a window box or hanging basket where you can enjoy watching pollinators play. A gorgeous long-season annual flower that tolerates light frost, Magenta Petunia begins blooming in spring and continues all summer and fall until the first hard freeze. Pinch off faded flowers to keep plants tidy and encourage rebloom. Try combining Magenta Petunias with other sun-loving plants in containers, like geraniums or salvia. Petunias create a gorgeous "spiller" for an attractive, vibrant addition to porch and patio pots. Fill a mailbox garden with Magenta Petunias for a gorgeous carpet of color that creates curb appeal. Plant petunias near the veggie garden to attract pollinators to boost harvests. These low-maintenance, multi-purpose plants are heat-tolerant, long-blooming, and just plain pretty!
Plant Magenta Petunia in well-drained, evenly moist soil and feed with Miracle-Gro® Plant Food at planting. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Use mulch to help retain moisture in the soil. For best results, add high-quality Bonnie Plants® live plant petunia to your garden instead of growing from seed for an instant addition of color and brightness. Your garden will be off to a great start!Read More

Welcome your Plant
1. Remove Packaging
Take each individual bonnie plant out of the box before carefully opening each individual plant’s packaging. Be cautious of soil that may have shifted during transportation.
2. Check the Soil
Your plants were watered right before shipping, but they may have become thirsty during travel. If the soil is dry to the touch, give your plants a good drink before planting.
3. Adjustment Period
Let your plants get used to their new environment. Set them in a warm, sunny spot for 34 to 48 hours so they can recover from their trip before being planted.
Long term Care
1. Location, location
Find the right spot for your plant. Check each plant’s tag for information on how much sun your plan’s need. Growing tip: if your plant needs full sun, a south-facing area will give you the most sunlight. If your plan can grow in part shade, an east or west-facing window might be enough.
2. Soil & drainage
Making sure your container has holes to allow excess water to drain is vital to your plant’s health! We recommend planting your Bonnie Plant in Miracle-Gro Potting Mix for containers, or Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for planting in ground.
3. Hungry plants
Feeding your plants is one of the best ways to improve your plant’s health and maximize your harvest. We recommend feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food when you transplant, and feeding regularly following label directions for best results.
