Petunia Soleil™ is not only magnificent, it's wonderfully drought-tolerant. It loves to be grown dry which makes it extremely useful in containers or out in the garden as many professional landscapers know.
The secret on how to grow Petunia Soleil™ is simple. Let it grow as you would for any ordinary petunia, but just as it prepares to flower, reduce the watering and you'll be rewarded with an astonishing number of flowers. Better still, it will recover after a heat wave or a short vacation - just give it a little water and it will revive where other petunias will stay limp. The masses of vibrant purple blooms and a compact mounding habit make it a wonderful addition to any garden!
