WHY IT IS
Surfinia® was the first trailing (hanging) Petunia brand on the market. Surfinia® Petunias are grown from cuttings and are perfectly trailing and rain resistant. A real breakthrough! Introduced in the nineties and still the top of the bill. But Surfinia® is much more nowadays.
The spectacular trailing habit of Surfinia® Petunia is unique and much bigger than the regular size of trailing plants. This is what makes Surfinia® still the best and most widely sold Petunia in the world, for almost 30 years and counting.
Another characteristic of Surfinia® is that it is resistant to rain, a major advantage over the more sensitive seed Petunia. The success of Surfinia® spreads rapidly across the continents. In Europe, the best-specialized companies took on the task of producing Surfinia® material of the highest quality and guaranteeing the level. It is certainly worthwhile for the user to purchase only Surfinia®’s of original quality. Only then you can be assured that your balcony, your flowerbed or flower dish will become the shining star of the neighborhood.
