Plant details

Conchita Doble series of petunias have an excellent trailing habit and produce semi-double flowers in a variety of luxurious colours. Petunia Conchita Doble 'Velvet' bears rich, velvet-red flowers in contrast with deep green foliage. They are ideally suited to growing in hanging baskets, either on their own or as part of a mixed display with other trailing bedding plants. For best results water regularly and feed weekly with a high-potash fertiliser. Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering.
