wow! it's like it is water-color painted, such a nice range on the same plant. the commonly available stuff is so-o gaudy that i could barely find a couple of plants last year to buy!
i'll try harder next year. thank you!

They reminded me of those antique shades of pansies that made the nursery rounds for a while. I haven't seen either in at least a couple of years now.

so i googled and it's an italian (Farmen) hybrid says here:
http://www.superseeds.com/dolce-flambe.html
do you think dolcissima Salmon is the same cultivar?
seeds here:
http://summerhillseeds.com/petunia-dolcissima-flambe-salmon-...
i am in the apt - so raising from seed is not my thing; but there's always the future :).
i also found that it is from a Dolce series (and atp has entries for them):
http://loghouseplants.com/plants/shop/petunia-dolce-series/
and it turns out i had a lemony 'Limoncello' a few years back! and i do love Limoncello too - easy to remember ;). so may be they do carry it on occasion, i'll just have to be on a lookout. the whole dolce series is very special.
