The potunia (from the fusion of the words “pot” and “petunia”) is a hybrid born in Germany from the recent botanical experimentation on the more common petunia. As its “mother”, it is hailing from Central and South America and it belongs to the Solanaceae family. It can be recognised for its more compact and rounded shape, for the much more abundant blooming and for the several colours, which are more intense and in some cases shaded, of its characteristic trumpet flowers. Even the leaves, hairy and slightly sticky as in petunias, are different because of their scent.
The Surfinia is a hybrid that was born in Japan from the botanical experimentation on the Petunia.

The foliage is covered by down and it is slightly sticky; the characteristic trumpet inflorescence blooms only at the end of the hanging branches.
