A spreading growth habit gives it a stage to show off its abundant luminescent pink, lavender and white, large-sized fragrant blooms. This old-fashioned petunia is more cold tolerant, disease resistant and heat tolerant than most modern hybrids.
Its origin is the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and it literally oozes old southern charm and grace. America's favorite annual for sunny sites, noted for its prolific summer-long flowering, spreading or cascading growth habit and alluring, old-fashioned aroma that is hard to find in today’s modern hybrids.
It is believed that the petunia originated in South America and the vast majority planted today are the result of crosses of twelve South American natives. Its name is derived from “Petun”, the Brazilian name for tobacco, to which it is closely related.
Self-sows, but you will get earlier flowers by starting the seeds indoors.
