Ray Black Petunia

The first year that we got these, we were surprised at how well they sold since we did not anticipate a black blooming flower would be a hit with the bright colored bloomers that we traditionally sell in the spring. Ray definitely has black blooms and is a mounding petunia with height of about 10" and width of 14" at maturity. Keep Ray deadheaded and he'll bloom all spring and summer - in Tennessee, petunias do well in full sun as long as they're watered regularly - do not let them dry out between waterings. Be sure to fertilize petunias with some Osmocote (slow release fertilizer) in around June when you cut back some of the straggly looking branches and he will fill out nicely again with strong foliage and blooms.
