  • Largest and most vigorous of the Wave petunia family, Tidal Wave plants provide super-size colour in big spaces, and are suitable for large city baskets and plantings.
  • Excellent landscape performer with terrific recovery from rain. Unlike other petunias, Tidal Waves stay together.
  • Recommended in Wave branded packaging: 8-in./20-cm pots.
Height, spread and spacing: Growth habit is based on how closely plants are placed – the closer the spacing, the taller the plants.
  • Spaced a minimum of 12 in./30 cm apart, Tidal Wave petunias form a dense, mounded hedge, 16 to 22 in./41 to 56 cm tall.
  • Grown in a restricted space with support, they grow an extra 2 to 3 ft./61 to 91 cm upward, like a vine.
  • Spaced up to 24 in./61 cm apart in the garden, the plants make a floriferous groundcover, spreading up to 5 ft./1.5 m across per plant.
