: My petunias have always been sticky...I just thought that was the way they are. I got the Supertunias this year because you aren't supposed to have to deadhead them as much - that way I won't have to get my hands all icky. most varieties of petunias have hairy stems and leaves, supposedly nature's attempt at trapping voracious insects t hat would nibble the plant to death. just leave em alone. this'll give you time to stake your tomatoes and deadhead the roses. enjoy
