Individual Petunia Varieties
The best and brightest individual petunias.
New genetic dwarf multiflora petunia that will not stretch even under adverse conditions. Mambo flowers earlier than any multiflora and its elegant flowers are larger (up to 3½ in. across). Extremely weather tolerant plants thrive and flower no matter what Mother Nature has to offer. Growing 6-8 in. tall and wide, plants will flower continuously until frost and are perfect for edging borders or paths. Mambo petunias receive our vote as the premium petunias for container gardening.
