Wave Petunias Planted In Backyard Bed - May 2023

A couple of weeks back,  I showed off some of the most significant annual bedding planting that I've done in our backyard that included a bunch of shade-loving annuals like impatiens and begonias among others.  Number 25 on my 2023 to-do list was to use annuals beyond the container and with the shade annuals, I was feeling pretty good.  But, I also have a more sun-filled border near the kitchen window that I decided to try some other bedding annuals.  I poked around to try to figure out the difference between traditional petunias, supertunias and wave petunias.  Turns out, Wave are 'spreading' and are the best for bedding.  I picked up four of these Easy Wave Lavender Blue Sky Wave Petunias and stuck them in close to the border in a staggered planting.

These have a spread of more than a foot, so I'm hoping that these will fill in the spaces in between and put on a nice little blueish-purple show this Summer:

In the photo above, you can see the three Lucky Charm Anemones planted behind these that we put in last year.  They were temperamental last year with water, but (so far...), they've begun to spread out a bit and have come back strong.
