Surfinia Petunias is a house-hold name and they’re the perfect addition to hanging baskets, containers, window boxes and pots. Surfinia Petunia has beautiful cascading blooms that flower throughout the summer season and are robust enough to withstand the hot summers, strong winds and heavy showers.

Surfinia is an annual plant and looks fantastic in a basket as a mixed combination of colours or equally a a hanging basket full of a single Surfinia colour looks stunning.

Our Surfinias are supplied as a substantial plug and are really easy to grow. Surfinia plants grow quickly, they are one of the best cascading petunias for hanging baskets as they drape beautifully and can trail to 1 metre in a single growing season.
