I've always grown petunias, following in my grandmother's footsteps. They are lovely and the fragrance is wonderful...especially the lavender/purple hues. The Surfinia Heavenly Blue is my all time favorite. When it trails down the sides of the pot a ways I clip it and it pops up new leaves and flowers from the center of the plant. It is the end of August and they are still blooming profusely. Already I am looking forward to buying the Heavenly Blues next spring. :-)
