Not so, I hope ... and here are a few of the fun new petunias I am looking forward to trying out this year. They are all started from cuttings and are not available as seeds.
'Cascadias Indian Summer' is a new variety from Danziger. The blooms start as yellow and then change to different shades of orange and terracotta. All reports on this new petunia are full of superlatives, particularly regarding its growing habit.

A few years ago different companies started introducing black petunias with yellow highlights. I decided to give another highly recommended petunia in the 'Crazy' series, 'Crazytunia Star Jubilee' a try this year.

Black petunias are not my cup of tea. However, my customers like them and I am growing 'Sweetunia Black Satin' because it is touted as the best black petunia on the market with the color staying true and not as leggy as the competition.
