New petu­nias with at­ti­tude

Go Gardening - - Editorial -

Petu­nias have long led the field among sum­mer flow­ers. For decades they’ve reigned supreme in the cel­e­brated bas­kets and win­dow boxes of Europe. Aided and abet­ted by ex­cit­ing new de­vel­op­ments, they’re be­com­ing more fash­ion­able than ever.

This sea­son’s all new Crazy­tu­nias are shak­ing up the pe­tu­nia scene, world­wide. The breed­ers were told to go crazy and the re­sults are phenom­e­nal! We love the beau­ti­fully shaped flow­ers with their so­phis­ti­cated colours. And we love their neat and tidy growth habit.

Vig­or­ous but com­pact

Crazy­tu­nias grow strong and fast, and they don’t go strag­gly or bald in the cen­tre. They are be­ing hailed for their bold, chunky growth habit. They’re nat­u­rally multi-branch­ing and you don’t have to trim them to main­tain that tidy shape.

What­ever the weather

Petu­nias of old would turn to mush with rain or overzeal­ous wa­ter­ing. No mat­ter whether it’s rain or hot sear­ing sum­mer sun, Crazy­tu­nias shine on.

Rich vel­vet red

New Crazy­tu­nia ‘Red Blues’ is one of the most vi­brant red petu­nias avail­able, ar­guably the most ‘christ­massy’ colour you could plant to add a fes­tive touch to an en­trance or out­door din­ing area.

Sublime limes

Lime is the new white. So­phis­ti­cated, classy, and el­e­gant it is highly sought af­ter by fash­ion­able gar­den­ers. Crazy­tu­nia ‘Bit­ter Lemon’ and ‘Twi­light Lime’ of­fer new cit­rus tones with an ex­tra twist.

Vin­tage chic

Slightly bo­hemian in an­tique shades of grape, cream and sil­very rose, Crazy­tu­nia ‘Twi­light Blue’ makes a su­perb combo with ‘Twi­light Lime’, and it’s the kind of colour that will look great with al­most any other.

Best-ever black

Crazy­tu­nia ‘Black Mamba’ is con­sid­ered by many to be one of the best black petu­nias cur­rently on the mar­ket with no strip­ing or fad­ing of its large, open flow­ers.

Top for pots

Be­cause of their free-flow­er­ing com­pact form and their re­sis­tance to hot dry sit­u­a­tions, Crazy­tu­nias are ideal for all kinds of con­tain­ers - big tubs and bal­cony pots, ta­ble pots, hang­ing bas­kets and win­dow boxes.

Non-stop colour

Now is the time to plant and en­joy Crazy­tu­nias. Plant now and you’ll be re­warded with an in­stant colour ef­fect that will look even bet­ter by Christ­mas and con­tinue longer, right through au­tumn un­til win­ter.
