I purchased this little guy at a local nursery. At the time, one of the employees were going to trash the plant as it looked sickly. I told them I would take the plant off their hands, so I bought the plant at a 75% discount. Spent a week nursing it back to health and it has made remarkable recovery. Wife fell in love with it.

Petunias from the Celebrity series are early to bloom (11.5 weeks from seed to bloom) and are free flowering in wet weather. They have a wide color range, as well. Celebrity Blue is really closer to deep purple than deep blue. Whatever the case, it is a lovely rich shade and mixes well with yellow or white flowers such as marigolds and paludosum daisies.
