Last summer was my first experience with growing these dwarf petunias. The blooms are quite small, but profuse on the plant. They are early bloomers, about 9.5-10 weeks from seed to bloom, and they held up well in our rainy climate. They offer diversity of color and a compact habit that lends itself well to containers and hanging baskets.
