Petunias are ideal for adding long-lasting color to all sorts of containers, hanging baskets, and even garden borders. Burgundy Skies is an outstanding cultivar that has deep-colored, non-fading petals that appear to be taken straight from the night sky. The creamy white markings sprinkled across some of the flowers give the plant an informal and exciting look and are more pronounced during cooler temperatures in the spring and fall. 

Burgundy Skies is a quick-growing plant that can spread anywhere from 20-30 inches, making it useful as a filler or spiller in a container arrangement. The low, mat-forming shape works perfectly as a temporary ground cover or bedding plant for larger garden beds. Plant Burgundy Skies along a retaining wall or pathway to soften hardscape lines and encourage beneficial pollinators to your yard. 

Burgundy Skies Petunia Care

Petunias thrive in well-draining soil and in at least 6 hours of direct sun exposure. The cooler temperatures of early spring and early fall are ideal for growing trouble-free plants as long as the nighttime temperature is above 45F (7C). Keep the plants well irrigated, only allowing the top 1-2 inches of potting soil to dry out between waterings. Fertilize plants on a regular schedule throughout the growing season to encourage flower development and overall robust growth. Regular deadheading of Burgundy Skies Petunia will keep the plant from growing leggy and producing seeds, which allows for more flowers to develop. 

Petunias are tender perennials in USDA hardiness zones 10-11, although they are commonly sold as annual plants in all gardening zones. Petunias can be successfully overwintered indoors if you can provide full sun exposure (at least 6 hours of bright sunlight) and plenty of humidity to counteract the drying effects of central heating through the winter months. 

Petunias can be propagated by seed in late winter. Avoid deadheading and allow the plants to set seed at the end of the summer. Save the dried seeds in a paper envelope and store them in a dark, dry spot until you are ready to plant them. 

Burgundy Skies Petunia Spacing

Petunias can be planted much closer together in a container than when planted in open garden beds. A hanging basket with a 10-inch diameter is enough space for 3 plants. When planting Petunias as a bedding plant, give the plants space to spread while maintaining good air circulation. Space plants 12-16 inches apart, center on center.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
