Fragrant Daddy Blue petunia

It’s petunia-sniffing time again. I discovered Daddy Blue petunia while sniffing my way up and down the aisles in garden centres this spring. It’s the only way to find scented petunias, as there is seldom any mention of fragrance on plant labels.

Scented petunias

I want to entice hummingbirds to stay longer in the garden, so I’m interested in knowing more about scented petunias. I’ve grown Madness Plum Crazy petunia.
