Wave petunias are very easy to grow compared to regular petunias. They do not need constant deadheading and pinching back, and they bloom profusely all season long with proper watering and fertilization.
Plant wave petunias in different soil each year. Plant them in a different spot in the ground, or for containers and hanging baskets, change the soil annually.
Yellowed leaves usually indicate a need for nutrients. Apply a soluble fertilizer up to twice a week for container plants, of weekly for in-ground plants, and keep the plants watered. Do not allow the soil to dry out.
Rabbits love petunias.
