I bought two 4" pots of this variety in late spring. They quickly took off and filled out two wire hanging baskets and have bloomed profusely since. I've pinched them back a few times and they quickly respond with a new flush of growth and blooms. Consistent water, good soil and steady fertilizing are the keys to keeping just about any petunia looking great throughout the season, and these are no exception.
