The Q&A Archives: Petunia Pinching

Question: Does Burpee offer any type of petunia where the flowers do not have to be pinched off on a regular basis? All petunias I have ever planted need to be pinched back.

Answer: Burpee's carries Wave Petunias that make excellent ground cover for flower beds and borders. The blooms change color as they fade and the plants are so vigorous that you barely notice the old flowers because the new flowers are so numerous. Give the new petunias a try: Misty Lilac Wave, Rose Wave, Purple Wave, or Pink Wave are all available for order online ( or toll free (800) 888-1447.
