Without adequate water, petunias may cease blooming, or foliage may wilt and die, within a day or two during hot, dry weather. With quick intervention, petunias can often be revived. Cut back foliage on overly dried petunias to within several inches of the soil level.
One may also ask, why are my petunias turning brown? Leaves or stems that turn brown on vining petunias and have fuzzy white or grey spots are indications that the plant has a fungal infection.
