Had two big (3 gallon plus) hanging pots with Wave petunias in them last year and didn't deadhead them, and they kept going until frost. In fact, the plants survived the winter, grew out again and right now they are covered with blooms. The plants died back to the main stems, but the thickest parts came through and sprouted vigorously once the weather warmed. They are actually better looking than plants started from seed.

OK--my wave petunias I started from scratch are doing great.  My question is, do I still have to deadhead the blooms?  I thought somewhere I had read you didn't have to deadhead wave petunias.  jerry in souther indiana
