Gardeners' Notes:

I like the color. This variety is slower growing than the other Waves in northern IL. It does well in partial shade. In fact, it seems to prefer partial sun to full. My best performing one gets sun from about 11 to 4.

seed collecting is easy on these wave petunia's. the seed head will turn brown and crack open. pinch off at base with thumb, careful not to turn upside down, dry thoroughly in container, to remove all excess moisture. package being careful there are no small holes for these teeny-tiny seeds to escape from. :-)
i enjoy not having to deadhead with these trailing petunias, but i don't like how they leave a big void in the center as they mature and lengthen. i now use another annual for the center and place the petunias around them. i pinch off the spent leaves to create a fuller plant and also i cut it back if it's looking bare or scragly.
