- 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.
Flowers may show appealing white “splashes” when plants are grown in high light or growth regulators are applied. Grows taller than the other Wave colours.
