We owe the origin of the Surfinia®’s to chance rather than to targeted planning. The Japanese scientist Dr. Sagazaki was responsible for a viticulture project for the Suntory® company in southern Brazil. He noticed an exceptionally strong wild-Petunia species with beautifully coloured flowers along the edges of the fields. In the Suntory® laboratories Dr. Sagazaki opt to improve the original material of the wild plant. Thanks to complex bio-technical methods, it was indeed possible to grow new varieties that shaded all comparable species. Nature surpassed itself! The new Surfinia®’s turned out to be fantastic growers who achieved the tenfold volume of traditional Petunias. The first colour was purplish with fascinating light intensity, then the colour spectrum could be expanded with new shades.
