Botanical Name - Petunia Supertunia ‘Violet Star Charm’
Common Name - Perennial Petunia
Description - The Proven Winners Supertunia range of perennial Petunias are best sellers due to their continuous blooms and heat tolerance. They bring colour your garden with a minimum of fuss. These new selections of perennial Petunia are easy to grow in sunny positions. This one is mounded type, but will also spill over the edges of containers. They are great container plants and will function as both spillers and fillers in combination planters. They are incredibly good landscape plants, best used at the front of beds. They are very densely branched plants. They are a great substitute for Calibrachoa in landscapes without excellent drainage – Calibrachoa requires excellent drainage to thrive, while petunias are much more forgiving.
