The red-flowered "Illusion (Iluzja)" garden petunia (Petunia hyb. multiflora nana) is a magnificent petunia variety producing carmine-red, large flowers with white edges. The plant offered here grows 30 - 35 cm tall and blooms equally abundantly as the petunias grown in balcony boxes. It is resistant to heavy rains, what makes it perfectly suitable both for cultivation in pots and outside, on borders and flower beds. "Iluzja" petunia will enchant your every guest, especially if you plant it with other "Iluzja" pink and blue-flowered petunias. It will also form great partnerships with flossflower, lobelia and French marigold.
Seeds of this easily cultivated annual plant should be sown in winter in a greenhouse or into pots placed on a bright windowsill at home. Seedlings should be pricked out after they would have developed the first true leaves. We recommend 3 x 4 cm spacings. Transfer the seedlings to the permanent site at the end of May. You may choose any site that would guarantee sufficient exposure to sunlight - open or partially shady. Garden petunias like every kind of moist soil with high humus content and slightly acidic reaction.
