What brings a hot summer day to mind quite like a petunia? I love the simple shape, the vibrant colors, and its robust habit of growth. They grow companionably with other annual and tropical plants. They are not in the least bit demanding or troublesome to grow. Petunias even smell like summer. Why are they on my mind today? We have had a very cool and very rainy start to our summer. Early mornings the end of June-still jacket weather. We’ve had many more inches of rain than our average. The petunias are looking bedraggled and forlorn. Here’s hoping for some hot and dry weather-for the sake of the petunias.
