peh-TOON-yah in-teg-rih-FOE-lee-ah
Genus:  Petunia
This easy, fast-growing annual cascades 3 feet or more from window boxes or hanging baskets. It's a prolific bloomer, with nonstop, violet flowers approximately 1.5 inches wide blanketing the foliage. Plants bloom from May through the first frost.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Great as a groundcover. Does not need deadheading. Native to Argentina, it is one of the plants from which many Petunia cultivars have been derived.
Care:  Needs moderate water, full sun, and loamy soil. Combine with other vigorous growers to prevent it from overgrowing companion plants.
Propagation:  Sow seed 10 to 12 weeks before setting outdoors. Take softwood cuttings in spring or summer.
Problems:  Aphids, caterpillars, leaf miners, gray mold, bacterail soft rot, various leaf spots, cucumber mosaic virus, and impatiens necrotic spot virus.
