I planted this in a container last year between two other planters of the lime green sweet potato vine, and it was spectacular! The yellow accent in the petunia picked up and complemented the yellowish green leaves of the sweet potato vine in a very pleasing way. Lovely!

I like this one better than Black Velvet, a solic "black" because the yellow stripes allow you to be more creative and colorful with companion plantings. No comment as of this writing about its hardiness.
