It can be grown on its on in pots or as part of a mixed floral display or alongside white, yellow orange or red flowers.

I have used Petunias for my hanging baskets but they look very odd as some hame cascaded down and the rest up right, and the ones in my flower beds have all collapsed. I am dissapointed as was expecting fab hanging baskets.
