Petunia

A genus of tender perennials or north of zone 10 - summer annuals, that are low growing, with sticky bright green leaves and abundant flowers that come in a wide range of color. If deadheaded, Petunias may bloom all summer long.
They prefer full sun to partial shade on light, well drained soil with some shelter.
Petunias do well in planters and the trailing varieties are often used for hanging baskets. They are prone to damage from aphids and virus diseases.
In temperate climates, plant Petunias outdoods after the threat of frost has passed during spring.
