February 2016 — Tidal Wave® Red Velour Spreading Petunia, from PanAmerican Seed, is a great season-extender. It is an All America Selections and Fleuroselect Gold Medal winner…

It blooms throughout the spring and summer and has an upright habit. The flower size is 2 to 2.5″ (5 to 5.5 cm).

Supplied as pelleted seed, the plug crop time is five to six weeks. The transplant to finish times are 11 to 13 weeks in spring and nine to 11 weeks in summer.


Tidal Wave fills big spaces and climbs along and over walls and fences. It is an excellent landscape performer with terrific recovery from rain.

The plants resist lodging, so they won’t fall open and expose a bare centre like other petunias can. It is recommended in Wave branded packaging in 8″ (20-cm) pots.
