I wish I was more of a fan of Petunias but I’m not. I think the reason is, there are so many of them. Bazillions….In pots, flats, hanging baskets, bouquets…on decks, patios, porches. I cannot walk around the farm without running into them. Municipalities all over Eastern North Carolina buy them by the truckload to beautify sidewalks and so on. I even ran into whiskey barrels filled with them at a local fish market. It’s easy to see why they are so popular. They’re cheap, come in a variety of colors and are amazingly drought tolerant. They’re also quite photogenic I think. So what’s not to like? Familiarity breeds contempt even in the flower world I suppose. Obviously I need to have an attitude adjustment.
See you next time on most of this same blog.
