Natural Dwarf Petunia

Petunia Limbo *GP*

Limbo was the first introduction in Hem Genetics Low Grow class of garden flowers and became the world-standard in genetic dwarf grandiflora petunias. No need for plant growth regulators (PGRs) reduces significantly the production costs and also makes the cultivation process less labour-intensive and more efficient. No use of PGRs also allows ECO friendly production. Whether used in packs, pots, containers, hanging baskets, borders and in the landscape, Limbo give fantastic garden performance throughout the season and need relatively little maintenance. *GP* stands for improved Garden Performance which is shown by means of better branching and more garden growth vigor.

A new breeding breakthrough is the introduction of three picotee colors. In 2017 red, rose and burgundy picotee.

In addition to the full mix and grower mix, there is Heather’s mix which has been created by and named as a tribute to Heather-Will Browne, the color-guru at Walt Disney World Horticulture, for use in their parks.


Limbo *GP* offers following great features:

•very little to no use of growth regulators (PGRs)

•naturally better branching with shorter internodes

•non-stretching during production

•non-stretching on retail benches

•extra large flower size

•perfect performance in containers, borders and landscape

•profuse quantities of flowers for garden color throughout the season

•fast recovery from weather/rain damage

•easy to grow with little maintenance

•much less splitting/lodging in the landscape compared to non-genetic dwarf petunias

•No use of PGRs enables ECO friendly production
