Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Weezingreens On Jan 19, 2003, Weezingreens from Seward, AK (Zone 3b) wrote:

This petunia was listed as Crimson Ultra Star in my seed catalog. The Ultra series petunias are grandifloras, and advertised to be early bloomers (10-12 weeks in the North). They are base branching, and the 4" flowers bloom uniformly from color to color.
