This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Supertunia® Series petunias feature a vigorous trailing habit and prolific season-long bloom. The medium-sized, funnel-shaped flowers come in rich shades of white, lavender, blue, purple, red, pink, or peach. They continue through the dog days of summer, long after many other petunias have flagged in the heat.
Hybrid petunias are garden standbys. Developed from several South American petunia species, these sun- and heat-loving annuals or tender perennials were among the first ornamentals to be bred for the bedding plant market in the 1950s. They have medium to fine, oval, mid- to dark-green leaves and fuzzy, sticky, scented stems. The velvety, pungent flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. New, improved hybrids such as those in the Supertunia® Series continue to be introduced.
Petunias are as easy to grow as they are pretty. They require ample sun and grow best in rich soil with good drainage, but also perform well in infertile soil. Petunias are a good choice for fall and winter planting in warm, frost-free zones. In colder regions, plant them after danger of frost has passed. They bloom best with regular fertilization and will flower all season with no deadheading. Supertunia® Series petunias are good for hanging baskets, beds, and window boxes; as "fillers" in borders and tubs; and just about anywhere else that brilliant, long-lasting color is needed. These vegetatively propagated hybrids must be purchased as plants.
