Does anyone know someone with seeds for "Fluffy Ruffles" petunias or a Canadian source for them?

Maybe @Joannabanana could help? She's in Canada and grows beautiful petunias.

There sometimes is a variety similar on racks at CTire.
I think it is called Super Bissima?

Stokes sells Frillytunia which are also similar.

Hi LaurieEmbree! Welcome to ATP. Have you checked out our Plant Database? It has a section just for petunias:
The Petunias Database

Sadly, no one has yet listed that they have or trade those particular seeds:
Petunia (Petunia 'Fluffy Ruffles')


I didn't find a vendor in Canada, but I found "New Zealand":

@CarolineScott or @mcash70 might know a good place in Canada to order "Fluffy Ruffles" petunia seeds.

This person on "Etsy" said she or he ships worldwide, and has that seed:

I agree with Caroline. They look similar to Super Bissima. They would probably require diligent deadheading to keep blooming.
