Grower Information : Shock Wave varieties deliver the best reboundability and are the earliest to flower of any spreading petunias – it’s the only small-flowered series from seed you can grow! The plants bloom in a tight and consistent, 4 to 6-day window, and combine fast flowering with strong branching to deliver the quickest fill in baskets. Ideal for early-season sales, Shock Wave performs equally well in small spaces, hanging baskets, containers and mixed combos, producing a mounded, spreading plant that is similar in shape and just as easy to manage as Easy Wave. Well-suited to a wide range of production sizes including 1801 flats, 4 to 6-in./10 to 15-cm pots, and 10 to 12-in./25 to 30-cm baskets. 1.5 to 2 in. (4 to 5 cm) flower size.

Replaces Purple with a much more vibrant colour and more manageable habit.
