Supertunia® Royal Velvet Petunia | PBS

Duration: 00:38
Program: P. Allen Smith's Garden Home

Like all the Supertunia® varieties, Royal Velvet is a vigorous grower and a prolific bloomer. The deep purple color of the flowers looks great in combination with orange, hot pink and chartreuse. An additional perk is that this variety is day-length neutral. This term simply means that the plant will produce an abundance of blooms even when the days are short in spring and fall, which translates into a longer blooming season. Annual except in zones 10 and 11; full sun; cascading habit; 6 to 10 inches tall. Buy Proven Winners® plants at your favorite garden center or online at ProvenWinners.com.
