I think this is the variety of Petunia I have. I bought it from a nursery several months ago and planted it in hanging baskets with lobelia and purple alyssum. It looks beautiful and is so easy and hardy! It fills in great and has been blooming nonstop! With my mild California weather, this might even prove to be perennial. The color is amazing, so bright and eye-catching! I don't kill snails so when I planted this in the ground, the snails ate the blooms. But in hanging baskets, out of the reach of snails, they are great!
