Old Fashioned Vining Petunia - (Petunia multiflora) This old petunia mix was popular with gardeners throughout much of the first part of the 20th century, but has nearly been lost to cultivation because of seed companies’ interests in selling newer varieties. This variety has delightfully fragrant blooms in shades of rose, lavender and purple. Trailing plants are perfect for adding colour and fragrance to window boxes and hanging baskets. Edible flowers are fun in salads.
