Heat Elite Mambo Burgundy Petunias
These are new dwarf multiflora petunias, they bloom earlier than any multiflora and with larger flowers (2-3.5 inches across). Heat Elite Mambo Mix is extremely weather tolerant, growing well under almost any conditions. Because they are genetically dwarf, they remain compact and will not stretch. Grows 6-8 inches tall, with an attractive mounding habit.
Consider the Mambos the multiflora counterpart to the genetically dwarf grandiflora Limbo series. Like their grandiflora cousins, Mambo is the next generation of breeding that emphasizes garden performance along with its naturally low growing plant habit. This attribute allows them to be produced with little to no growth regulators, resulting earlier flowering and larger blooms than most typical multifloras. At the end of the summer when petunias are known to get rather leggy, Mambo GP maintains it compact height but will have a slightly wider plant spread than its predecessor, filling in gardens and landscapes more quickly. Height: 8-10″, 15-18″ spread.
Petunia Flowers are bright and lively, bloom from spring until frost, and scent the air with lovely fragrance. Best of all, they’re amazingly easy to grow, both in the garden and in containers.Petunias are one of the most popular garden bedding flowers. They have wide trumpet shaped flowers and branching foliage that is hairy and somewhat sticky. Petunias are prolific bloomers, although some forms require deadheading to keep them going. However most varieties will bloom throughout the summer, except in extreme heat. You can now find petunias in just about every color but true blue and with growing habits that mound in borders or trail down containers.
