Considered a "hedgiflora" petunia, this series is an aggressive grower, forming a shrub-like shape that holds all summer long. It exhibits high Botrytis tolerance, recovers quickly after rain, and resists lodging. Tidal Wave Velour Red petunias are excellent for landscape use and large containers, where the masses of 2" blooms cover the vigorous growing plants. When spaced 12" apart, plants make a dense mounded hedge. When spaced 24" or more apart, plants spread like a ground cover up to 4'.
Color: Dark blood red w/ velvety undertones and dark throat
