These flowers are blue and purple petunias (you can also find them in reddish colors), but they have white dots that make them look like they were plucked right out of the night sky. If you love all things galaxy-themed, you have to get these! They can be a bit tricky to grow, so let us share some tips with you.


1. Make sure you plant the seeds in cool temperatures

It is best to plant them in the spring with cooler temperatures. If it is already too warm where you live, you may have to wait until next year to plant these beauties. When you plant them in cooler temperatures, the more successful they will grow! If you can’t wait to plant them, just know that not as many white dots may appear if you plant in warm temperatures.

2. You can control how many white dots appear


By planting them in the cool weather, they will start to grow in cooler weather and have more white dots. When they grow in too warm of temperatures, they will be more purple and not have as many dots. You can try to cool them down or warm them up with water.
