Plant details

Petunias enjoy hot, dry weather, especially double kinds such as the Duo Series of varieties, which are so densely packed with petals that their glorious large blooms are almost too heavy to withstand rain and wind. For this reason, they are best planted in containers in warm sheltered places, where they will add a lavish exotic touch to bedding schemes. The Surfinia Series is a popular trailing kind for containers, available in a wide range of large-flowered varieties, all making luxuriant cascades of branching stems, covered in blooms. If healthy, they are easy to keep to the following year.
