PETUNIAS! Crazytunia! Supertunia! Easy Wave Petunia! What are they and how do they work!?

Updated: May 11, 2020

The petunia is native to North America and is grown as an annual. It belongs to the nightshade family and has brightly colored funnel-shaped flowers that bloom all summer long. The varieties are endless: single and double blooms, striped, veined or solid colors, mounding and cascading habits and some even have a fragrance. Most of the petunias grown today are hybrids which means they have been developed for a specific design purpose, such as edging, cascading from a hanging basket, a pot filler or as ground cover.
