A dressy garden classic, Pinstripe shares the same plant habit and easy culture as Black Magic and Phantom. This sophisticated petunia’s deep purple – almost black – blooms show off a sleek, creamy white star pattern, beautiful in baskets and pots.
Propagation Information: Avoid stretch by moving crop to cooler air temperature in second and third weeks of propagation. Transplant on time.
Culture Information: Cool temperatures and high light will reduce or eliminate any need for PGRs. Monitor pH regularly for high pH and possible iron deficiency. Flowering will be best as days lengthen in late Spring and Summer. Daylength of more than 14 hours will hasten flowering.
Plant Growth Regulators: B-Nine(S) 1,500-2,500 ppm, applied 2-4 times, can be used to control habit early. Bonzi(D) 0.25-1.0 ppm applied as crop matrues will control final height but not delay flowering or reduce flower size. B-Nine applications late in the crop time can cause instability in flower color.
