Plant Addicts guarantees your plant(s) will arrive happy and healthy, but the plant(s) are being shipped through the mail and accidents happen.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty whether you’re new or an expert. There are many variables outside our control and yours that can cause the demise of your plant(s). Examples would be hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, disease, insects & many other factors. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all the unknowns and will replace your plant if it moves on to the plant afterlife.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant purchase. We will cover 100% of the price of the plant but the warranty does not cover shipping cost. Simply let us know if your plant has died within one year of receiving it and we’ll get you a new one shipped out. We may ask for photos for documentation purposes but again we’ll try to make it as easy as possible.

Plants Included In Sweet Stars Annual Combination

Your patio or porch is never going to be the same when you place this outstanding combination on it. Oh my, those stars! Mini Vista Pink Star won the honor of being the Annual of the Year, and the Violet and Sangria are award winning Top Performers as well so you know what to expect out of this basket! Hundreds of petite petunias bloom to absolutely cover the foliage on these beauties. The classification of ‘mini’ only refers to the size of the blooms, this combination is huge!

Dainty pink and white stars complement violet and white stars and a solid fuchsia purple and provide a beautiful contrast to the green foliage (when you can see it peeking out from the myriads of blossoms). Such a vibrant mix of color! Mini Vista Petunias typically spread out 24 inches and trail 24 inches to create a beautiful cascading effect that you are going to love. You will want to try this combination this spring.

Sweet Stars Annual Combination Care

While petunias will appreciate a well draining soil, these Mini Vistas are much more forgiving than their cousins the calibrachoa when it comes to soil moisture. Full sun to some afternoon shade is preferred, so a porch or patio is the perfect place for them. They are heavy feeders, so applying a controlled release fertilizer when you first plant them followed by weekly applications of a water soluble fertilizer during heavy flowering months will give you the results you are looking for. Develop a regular watering schedule for best results and water when the top of soil is dry but before the flower wilts.

A 12 inch hanging basket or patio container will work for the 4 ¼ inch pot size plants and they will quickly fill and spill over the container sides. These are very vigorous plants. Space them up to 12 inches apart for good air circulation and to give room to grow. Use a larger container for the 8 inch pot size plants or if adding additional plants to your arrangement. Deadheading is not necessary since these hybrids drop their spent flowers. You may want to shear or prune your plants at least once in mid season to help them retain their shape and renew flowering. Cut back about ⅓ of the volume of the plant for best results. They will bounce back in about a week or so.

Sweet Stars Annual Combination Ideas

Do not restrict yourself to only planting these lovely vigorous annuals in containers. Mini Vista Petunias make a lovely statement when massed out in your garden bed or placed in your landscape border. Place them in the foreground of your beds as they spread out nicely. When planted in the ground, you should only have to fertilize once in the season. Again, well draining soil in a full sun location with perhaps some afternoon shade in the hottest regions and a regular watering routine will make the stars shine in your garden this spring.
