I so LOVE petunias! And this photo is so pretty! But this particular petunia was such a dud for me. I was thrilled to get a new hybrid only to have it look faded and hardly visible after a short time in my not so hot sun. Such a disappointment!

I am a little bit squealy with delight you chose my photo for bloom of the day :) thanks! I would have to agree with you Kell, these looked great towards the beginning of the season, but they kinda look like poop now. I'm thinking I might give them a pretty heavy hair cut and see if they spring back.
