  • Virtually care-free, the plants bloom like crazy all season, with masses of flowers along the entire length of each branch with no trimming back.
  • Wave petunias stand up well to both heat and cooler conditions, and perform better than most petunias when botrytis is present. 
  • Recommended in Wave branded packaging: 6-in./15-cm pots, premium gallons, hanging baskets.

Timing is similar to Misty Lilac. All-America Selections Winner, Fleuroselect Gold Medal.
