There are various purple color.Great job!
thanks cocomino – I do love those purples! happy the auto background chose that color as well… purple overload!
Wow – a lovely riot of colour! They look a lot healthier than mine (slugs!).
thanks Meanderer… it is a huge planter to achieve that effect.. mine (purple this year) are doing okay but nothing like tourism displays! ha ha..
perhaps the beer slug trap is in order?
I’m sorry Sheila, I just don’t ‘get’ the attraction of Petunias…..:-( Even bees have little to do with them????
OK, they do have colour:-)
beauty is in the eye of the beholder… the wave variety I planted this year are so pretty and vine-like, but in the evening the purple ones emit a lovely perfume…. and the hummingbirds love them.
Fabulous colours! 🙂
thanks Lu… quite intense colours and they have a mat finish that photographs well.
Beautiful, a kaleidescope of colors! 🙂
thanks Ted – I love the different purples and pinks that are so close in color… but different.
Wow, Beautiful colors
mega color… nice to see on the street. thanks!
Love the coloring in this photo. Just beautiful.
thanks – Petunias have just the right light absorbing surface for maximum color saturation, even in harsh sunlight.
