SuperCal Petchoas and Perennial Petunias are so wonderfully versatile, they have a semi trailing to trailing habit and can be grown in gardens, containers, window boxes, hanging baskets, as ground covers, garden edging or filler plants in your borders.
SuperCal Petchoas are a hybrid of Petunias and Calibrachoas and give you the best of both worlds. You get the big flowers and easy growing nature of the Petunias and the colour, trailing habit and flower power of the Calibrachoa. The blooms open across three seasons and are fantastic no matter the weather; the flowers remaining open, even after rainfall. Plus, the plants are self cleaning, so you don’t have the hassle of sticky flowers as you do with Petunias.
The Surprise Series of Petunias are early and free flowering with good consistency in pattern, the plants have a low growing, trailing habit.
Grow your in a sunny spot with well drained soil. You can add a liquid fertiliser every other week to keep them blooming at their best, or use a slow release fertiliser spring and summer – remember they flower a lot so need a good supply of nutrients. Water to establish and then keep moist in active growth. You will need more water in pots to keep them happy and healthy as potting mix is perfectly drained. Prune back as flowering starts to wane in winter and await their reshoot in early spring, you will have years of love from these plants.
You can enjoy a continuous procession of flowers from spring to frost without a lot of effort. They remain evergreen perennials throughout most of Australia but in areas of hard frost should be treated as annuals.
