Petunia

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. With its “mother” it just shares the geographical origin from Central and South America and the belonging to the Solanaceae family. It differs from its “mother” for the more compact and rounded shape, for the much more abundant blooming and for the several colors, more intense and in some cases shaded, of its characteristic trumpet flowers. Even the leaves, hairy and slightly sticky as the Petunias, are different because they are perfumed.
