Not Your Granny's Petunias
Alas, due to my self-imposed travel limitations, I never came across one. Imagine the thrill of finding just such a basket recently at the farm stand near City Hall! And such a pretty one! Each tiny blossom is a marvel of striated colors, in pink, orange and yellow.
When I was young (a long time ago) petunias were mostly purple. More recently, growers have created pinwheel varieties, a wide range of colors and the entrancing "wave" type that spills so gracefully out of containers.
Woo-hoo Mother Nature! Who knew there could be such a treasure in one basket!
