Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Suntory Flowers has taken their performance to a new level with Surfinia Summer Double petunias, a new series that is a spinoff of the world-leading Surfinia petunias.

 Compact plants flower profusely and early, presenting excellent coverage in patio containers, hanging baskets, window boxes and landscapes. The series is uniform across three colors – Pink, Rose and White.

 Throughout the season Surfinia Summer Doubles are heat and weather tolerant and flowers remain double in 90-degree heat. While traditional double petunias can get soggy and slimy in rain, Summer Double flowers are smaller and tightly held to shed rain with ease. As the season progresses, new flowers emerge to bury old ones, reducing the need for deadheading.
