You will want to consider Cool Wave Petunias as featured on this blog post today because they are a hardy plant that can grow well in 3 seasons including Autumn.  The Cool Wave are easy spreading covering for landscapes and in containers.  One plant can quickly cover a 6 inch container.  This product produced so well throughout the world in trial gardens that it had to be included in with the ‘wave’ signature branding.
