Dave,

I'm entering some petunias and the petunia defaults have them as annuals. A while back, I think it was decided that we would enter them as perennials and click the "suitable as an annual". The varieties that were in the system changed fine, but new varieties that I am entering shows both Annual & Perennial in the life cycle. example: Easy Wave Burgundy Star. Please advise.

Also, same thing is happening when I try to "uncheck" the suitable for 3 gallon container. Would you be able to uncheck the 3 gallon container default for petunias? Excluding Tidal Waves, you would need at least 6 plants for a 3 gallon size pot or am I miss-interpreting the 3-Gallon selection?

Joanne, thanks for this. I have edited the parent plant to remove "Life cycle: Annual" as well as "Suitable in 3 gallon or larger". Thumbs up

Thank you for doing this petunia database.
It answered a question that I had on the Burgundy Star petunias.
