Petunias are herbaceous perennials, usually grown as annuals, that have become one of our most popular garden plants. The petunias that we grow today comprise a large family of hybrids derived from many species including Petunia axillaris, P. violacea and P. inflata. Petunias are classified into two categories; grandiflora (large-flowered) and mulitflora (many-flowered). The grandiflora petunias have trailing stems and tend to spread. They also have the largest flowers that grow to 5 in (13 cm) in diameter. The multiflora petunias are bushier, more compact and produce smaller flowers that are about 2-3 in (5-7.6 cm) in diameter) but make up in quantity what they lack in size. The multifloras are also easier to grow and less bothered by pests.The basic petunia flower is funnel shape, but hybridizers have created many variations including singles and doubles with petals that have wavy or fringed margins. Many patterns are available in stripes, speckles and borders in an extensive color palette that includes purple, mauve, lavender, pink, red, white and yellow. Leaves and stems are sticky to the touch and have a distinctive odor. Use petunias in beds and borders. The spreading grandifloras are best appreciated trailing over the sides of hanging baskets or containers.
