Laura Bush Petunia Petunia X violacea (Solanaceae) 50 seed pack A hybrid between VIP & old fashioned petunia which was born & bred in Texas. Has fragrant violet flowers & does well even in alkaline soils. A hardy, reseeding annual variety native to South America. This rugged old-fashioned petunia variety was bred for its heat & cold tolerance & disease resistance. The Laura Bush Petunia scoffs at extreme summer temperatures, producing numerous 1-1 1/2 inch bell-shaped violet colored flowers. As the mercury rises in the dog days of summer, this baby literally cranks out the blooms. As an added bonus the dark green foliage serves as a background to compliment the vibrant flowers that practically glow. Prefers full sun in well-drained, fertile soil.
