They look a lot like the Dolcissimo Fragolino petunias - which I love .. perhaps they are one in the same?

Actually, this is a cross between a petunia and calibrachoa, in fact, today's new article by Joannabanana gives a nice overview of this new genus.

I found the article interesting and It's amazing how they look so much alike. Here are pictures of the Dolcissimo

Yes, many come in similar color ranges but the blooms are much smaller than petunias.

That first one is also sold as Grandiflora Petunia (Petunia 'Dolce Flambe')
and the second one is Grandiflora Petunia (Petunia 'Dolce Fragolino')

I love the Dolcissimo's mixture of colors
