This next batch of trailing petunias we want to talk about, we're moving down
in a degree of vigor. So these will be sold more than
11-inch size of hanging basket, not as vigorous as the
previous batch we were talking about but they still
are naturally branching, full effect.
Totally worth it if you want sort of a medium-sized
type of trailing petunnias. Over here on our left,
one of our best yellow petunias ever, This is called Surprise
Yellow. It looks just great against the one beside it. We've got some people
specifically by these two and alternate them. It looked really great. This is
Blue Sky. So these work very well together
in pastel shades. Over here,
one of the darkest red trailing petunias there is,
Sweetunia Hot Rod Red. Cool name.
And it hass trial out very, very good.
And next to it over here Sweetunia Blueberry Ice.
And the darkest orange petunia that we've
grown so far is Sweetunia
Orange Flash. A great
dark for a petunia. It's about the darkest orange you can find.
And these also work great
in wall bags because they are a little more compact,
less vigorous varieties that worked very well for
the wall bags. For some nice star
type trailing petunias, we've got a couple new varietis that has
come out here on either side of this center one.
We've got Rose and Shine. And way over here,
Cha Ching Cherry. These are two new introductions on the market
this season. They're both very popular. Very consistent in their
varigation on the flower and I think they're really going to become
popular rides in the future. This one in between them has been out for a while.
This is called Phantom.
Again, we're really happy with its consistent
star pattern. Really dark black-like purple
color too which, for certain people is
very popular as well. The last few years has been a lot work being
in the breeding end that is, to try and get a black petunia
and every year there seems to be a new variety coming out to compete with the
We found the blackest one to this day
that stays consistently black is
this one here called Crazytunia Black Mamba.
Now a lot of the other varieties will start out in the pcool season,
nice and black and then as it heats up in the middle of summer,
they basically turned a purple color. But this one holds true
better than any other variety so far. So we're really happy with it and that's
we want to introduce it to you as well. The merlots mahogany type colors,
very interesting work being done in that field.
So this is Crazytunia Red Blues.
Interesting new color that came out this season.
And now the last one in this row, Crazytunia
Mahogany. Just a beautiful a mahogany Merlot
color. Would work while against
any other lighter colored petunias or lighter colored annuals.
They get that really nice contrast so that's why these has become
so popular. This next group of petunias here
are called Potunias. So becoming
one of the most popular series of petunias out there.
For people who want a situation where they get a rounded effect in a
or say they're doing wall bags. So this is our most popular series for wall
bags. We do it on a wall bags just with the petunias
and some large 14-inch baskets, a side whole baskets.
We do a mix of these petunias in there and they just look stunning. And you just create
a round ball. Again, no deadheading
and just look perfect all season long. And again, going back to containers
on the ground, you just sort of round out the pot,
that's why they're given the name "Potunias". Well, if you were to
use a wave in that situation,
that would trail over, hit the ground and keep going. Most likely you would have to cut it
once or twice throughout the season. So if you don't want to have to bother doing
that, you just want that
perfect rounded effect, well that's when you go with the
Potunias Series of trailing petunias. So I just want to do a small introduction to the
Potunia Series. Down here, this really nice
orange variety is called Papaya. So
Potunia Papaya. This is Potunia Yellow
and I think one of the darkest yellow
petunias you can get being a very hard color to find in the
petunia family, is yellow and orange. So a great yellow variety.
And then we have Potunia Purple.
This is Pinkalicious. Really cool name.
One of my favorite varieties. A little bit of a dark eye to it.
An awesome performer.
And over here, this is Potunia
Neon and to my far left here, the last one,
overall probably the best performer. It's called WaterColor Purple. So Potunia
Just an interesting veined
variety in the series of Potunias. And now, last but not least, we have
another series. We're just showing you a couple of examples. There are others
in this series. These are Littletunias. So probably the most compact in
out of all the trailing type petunias. Smaller flowers, smaller leafed.
Just a real small, rounded habit. Sort of a miniature
look to them. So we have Littletunia Blue Vein here
and over here, this one is Littletunia
Purple Blue. So just a couple more
choices for you to decide from.
So that wraps up our segment on the training petunias.
And out of the 60 to 80 varieties we do every season,
ranging from the vigorous trailing type,
the doubles, the medium-vigor ones and the more compact, vegetative type,
I'm sure there's something here for everyone.
