THIS PLANT IS STILL ON MY DECK AND LUSH AND GREEN. I LIKE HOW THE VEINS IN THE PETALS OF THE BLOOMS HAVE BECOME DEEP CREVICES THAT MAKE IT LOOK CLOTH-LIKE.

I was surprised that our Petunias made it through two rounds of freezing temperatures. So it might last a while longer. It is a nice red.

Thom said...

Your description of this is right on. It's sure pretty :)

Beautiful little Petunia. To answer your question...not much longer, I would guess. What a hardy little plant to last this long "outside of California!"

Beautiful - and I can understand why you compare it to cloth; the texture is beautiful.

Carver said...

That's a gorgeous petunia Carletta. I love the way the veins stand out in this shot.

Beautiful Petunia. They can bloom until the frost takes them.

Have a nice day

A very nice shot, I hope the frost will stay away for some weeks!
Have a nice week!

I would welcome a petunia in bloom now--we are beginning the gray months of winter. Your pretty petunia is both reminder of summer past and a promise of summer to come.

Lui said...

How long will the petunias bloom? For you, they will bloom forever! Well, that's what my dogs said. I have a feeling they're right.

Rambling Woods said...

It does indeed look cloth-like, now if I had time to embroider?

Hi Carletta, I like petunias but they 're so aloof to me. I can't grow make them grow in the backyard.:(

I actually love looking for flowers this time of year. In your area you will have them longer than us. How lucky.
