Although they are all petunias, some plants are just hardier than others. Sounds like your Creme Brule need a little extra help. Be careful with watering - yellowing leaves usually indicate overly wet soils which can rob the soil of oxygen and actually suffocate the roots. Allow the top half inch of soil to dry out between waterings and feed with a diluted fertilizer to help the plants green up. Between the water adjustment and the fertilizer, your Creme Brule's should green right up. Best wishes with your plants!
