Looking to easily add some galaxy glamour to your home? Consider growing some Night Sky Petunias and bring the sky to the ground!

The deep-colored flowers, which are native to South America, are dark purple with white specs of various sizes. The spots give the appearance of bright stars against the dark hue of the petals. For obvious reasons, these plants are also called galaxy flowers.

The style occurs because of the variance between temperatures at which they survive: They need to be kept at around 100 degrees during the day and 50 degrees at night.


Galaxy flowers come in 35 different species but their primary colors are purple, white, red, yellow and orange. They are easy to purchase, especially online, with a pack of seeds costing a little more than $1 on Amazon.

Night Sky Petunias can reach a height of up to 16 inches in the spring and summer. Their beauty and ability to grow so high make them popular with flower enthusiasts.
