Growing Petunias

Hi, I am new to this site and a new gardener. I prepared a small new garden bed, amended the soil with compost and planted some petunias that were given to me. I do know know what kind of petunias they are. I had wanted to plant the Mexican Dwarf Petunia. The plants are not doing well and have no buds. From the size of the stems they must be from older plants. I think I planted the crowns too deep so I dug them up this morning and will replant them. The roots look okay. If I dispose of these and get the Mexican Dwarf's will my friend know? I do not want to offend her. She could plant rocks and they would grow, not so with me. Thank you for any help. I live in south central Texas.
