This is the first year I am growing this petunia. It is a gorgeous deep fuschia. It also has a great fragrance which most new pets don't have. So far it is disease and pest free and is growing very well. Wish I had a pic to show how pretty it is. It is growing in a pot and is starting to "trail" which I actually wanted it to do. I hope it comes true from seed as I am going to try saving seed this Fall.

Edited to add: Unfortunately I got no seeds from it as it didn't have any seed pods- none that I could see anyway. I am going to try to find another as this was a great petunia.

Edited 7-14-06: I was unable to find this petunia this year. Will try again next year>>>>> :(
