A couple of window boxes sit just below our front, 2nd story windows, and as the house is white, trailing petunias, usually in a nice bright pink-red color are planted there to add some color. As of today November 8th they are still going strong and in full bloom. With at least a week of seasonally mild weather in the offing, they should last another 6-7 days at least. Usually they last between 4 and 5 months, surviving 2-3 weeks into October. So far a couple of light frosts did not harm these petunias, so on and on they go. This is going to bust the previous record by 2-3 weeks.
