Hello! I've recently purchased a few petunia (and petunia-like) flowers. I currently have petunias by the name of supertunia, black mamba petunia, madness red petunia, and pink sky petunia. I have no idea what the habits of these petunias are, or if they're grandiflora or multiflora, or even what either of those words are! I'm currently looking for the type of petunia that is more of a stick in spread, but with huge blooms about 16 inches high. What type should I be looking for? All help is appreciated!
Maybe we should get a second opinion...

I think the madness red petunias I have are floribunda petunias. I don't know what that really is, though...

To find information about each type of Petunia you have, Google the name. "Proven Winners" seems to have a lot of information about different petunia varieties.

Stick in spread? Petunia blooms aren't ever 16 inches. Confused

I assumed CrazedHoosier meant the plant was 16 inches. That would be one mighty big flower! Rolling on the floor laughing
