The spreading-petunia market just got hotter! The Explorer series is a new introduction from Sakata Seed and will continue to flower even under the short days of fall. Explorer petunias have a flower size of about five to 7.5 centimetres in diameter, and the flower petals have a shiny, iridescent, waxy texture that repels water. This helps the blooms recover quickly after rain. There are nine colours available: blue, pink, rose, magenta, purple, rose pink, white, coral and lavender.
