Nothing spectacular, but it was fun to finally be able to bring in a small bouquet. Smiling

Smiling And they have also unleashed a monster! Now I want a bed I can devote solely to Oriental poppies! That one is Princess Victoria Louise. Grown from seed. Smiling

These were from a Color Parade Mix so I do not know if they have names or not.

Pretty bouquet Woofie.

Caroline, petunias are on of my favorite flowers, I like the first one, the color is a little unusual.

This year I am trying for old fashion petunias.
These color Parade ones seem to be the larger old flowers.
Also started California Giants, climbing, vining, integrifolia, and a few separate colors.
I am hoping that some give seeds. I used to collect petunia seeds every year, but lately none seem to form?

I would think that the varieties you've mentioned would produce lots of seeds! I've collected seeds off Sophisticas, Daddy series, Hula Hoops and lots of others. The only ones I've grown that didn't produce seed were the doubles, like Pirouette. Of course, an unusually short growing season could be the culprit. Smiling

Our growing season has been longer the last few years, but years ago I could collect seeds from the petunias.
