In all my years of gardening I had always thought of petunias as annual plants. Here in zone 5a/b the first frost eliminates them from the gardens. Therefore they are "done" for the season. As far as I know they can be grown in any zone where there is adequate warmth, sunlight, rainfall and similar conditions. So it is with some care that I read what the "facts" are in the data base. It is more important to exercise accuracy when adding "facts" about any plant to the data base. Otherwise I would still be thinking of this plant as an annual. D'Oh!

It's a tender perennial, to be sure. It comes back in my zone 9 garden and would come back in zones higher than 9, but no lower.
