Rose Star Petunia (4-Pack)
If you plant for pollinators, Bonnie Plants® Rose Star Petunia is a must-have in your garden. An old-fashioned favorite with big garden benefits, Rose Star Petunia’s pretty light pink petals with darker pink edges and trumpet-shaped flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Add petunias to a hanging basket or window box where you can watch pollinators play. An excellent long-season annual flower that tolerates light frost, Rose Star Petunia begins blooming in spring and continues all summer and fall until the first hard freeze. Pinch off blooms as they fade to encourage new flowers. Try combining Rose Star Petunias with other sun-loving plants in containers, like verbena and geraniums. They weave through the plants, creating a gorgeous "spiller" for an attractive, interesting addition to porch and patio pots. If you have a sunny, bare patch in the garden, fill it with Rose Star Petunias for a beautiful carpet of color in the landscape. These fantastic, multi-purpose plants are low-maintenance, heat-tolerant, and sweetly pretty!
Plant Rose Star 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.
