Petunia


When we think about petunias, we think of the fancy garden petunias and it’s difficult to imagine, but petunias are members of the nightshade (Solanaceae) family, though more closely allied to tobacco. This tropical South American genus has about 35 species and most of them are low spreading plants with simple, rounded, downy leaves and large 5-lobed flowers. The fancy garden forms lost their charms, but the wild species are often aromatic with scented flowers. Though, they compensate the lost of the charms by the abundance of blooms and a wealth of color. The flowers of the modern petunias are weather resistant and in mild climates can flower the whole year


Top Tip

Planted in full sun,
petunias put on a
superb floral display.
If planted in shade,
the lush foliage
will flourish but
fewer flowers
will be produced.

Cultivation


Petunias require moist well-drained soil and sunny places, also the dead flowers have to be removed frequently in order to keep the plants flowering. Perennials propagate from cuttings and the fancy double and large flowered forms are raised from seeds.
