The best for baskets

  • Blooms in a tight, consistent, 4 to 6-day window. 
  • Rebounds faster from overhead watering and rain than other petunias – stays fresher-looking at retail and outdoors. 
  • Performs equally well in small spaces, baskets, containers and mixed combos. 
  • Mounded, spreading plants are similar in shape and just as easy to manage as Easy Wave® petunia. 
  • Recommended in Wave branded packaging: 4-in./10-cm pots, premium quarts, 306 premium packs with handle, hanging baskets.

Flowers are dark blue-purple in cool/low light and greenhouse production; change to blue-lavender-silver in high light and hot conditions.
