Pretty Much Picasso Petunia has a Theme Song

Song and video here.
Okay, and now here's the image for you to gaze at while listening to the assigned above soundtrack:
Freakshow on the dance floor

I first saw this new "supertunia" kind of petunia last year in previews and trials. I had seen photos online prior to this, and each time I'm pretty sure my eyes popped out of my head while making a loud BOING sound. What was this wondrous freakshow of a plant?

Pretty Much Picasso was its name, and the color variation was strange and unusual, as I like to think of myself, strange and unusual (Quick: can you name the movie from which this line was inspired by?).

So when Proven Winners sent me a box of plants to test drive this season and report to you on (full disclosure here people), guess who was in the box? That's right. My little freakshow as seen here and I couldn't be happier with it.

I'm giving it a break right now because our weather has been so craptastic, but I have high hopes that it will do just fine in my garden, surrounded by fellow freaks and spectacular-spectaculars.

I shall report back, but in the meantime, how can you listen to this song and not be dancing?

My freaky petunia

Beautiful petunias. Gee, I almost wish we had your weather - triple digits tomorrow and lasting a week or so...

The music? Hmmmm... Disco Funk?

I think thanks to Glee I have "funk" on the mind, but this seems a little more disco, no?

I hope you all know that every time I see this flower I actually do sing this song out loud. Pinky swear.
