Petunia x hybrida
Colors include red, pink, white, purple, blue, yellow and bi-colors. Best used in mass plantings in beds and borders; excellent in containers. Can be planted in the fall in southern parts of the state, early spring in the north. Pinch occasionally to keep compact. New, more heat tolerant varieties available. Tidal Wave 'Cherry' and 'Silver' Petunias are two Texas Superstar top performers.
