Let's see how you can effortlessly become the happiest gardener in the world.
What Do We Know About Petunias?
First, a little petunia basics. We know petunias already for almost two centuries. To be exact, in 2023, petunia celebrates its 200 year anniversary in Europe. In 1823 the first plants were brought from South America to England. Although the indigenous name 'petun' suggests that this is a tobacco plant and they are closely related to the nicotiana, it is not wise to smoke the leaves. Besides, why would you? The petunia is here to be enjoyed and admired for its colorful appearance. This is exactly the reason why this seasonal plant quickly grew in popularity across Europe and the entire globe. The people from leading breeder Beekenkamp -leading not only in petunias, but also in many other flowers-, have expanded their reputation through constant improvement, resilience, and new varieties and colors.
Why the Petunia Tea Series?
What a funny name, isn't it. Petunia Tea? One you won't forget from now on for sure! There are many reasons why this name was picked. First of course because a classical English garden is a perfect spot for a little tea party. And next to that because, like tea, the variety of flavors - and colors, stripes, and dots - is endless.
The name is there just to be noticed, but it's the quality of this series that matters most. Petunia Tea series is the absolute top in Petunias. Perfect to cultivate for the growers, and the best petunias available to use for gardeners.
