Natural Dwarf Petunia

Petunia Mambo *GP*

Mambo was one of the first introductions in Hem Genetics Low Grow class and became the world-standard in genetic dwarf multiflora 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 enables also ECO friendly production. Whether used in packs, pots, containers, borders and in the landscape, Mambo 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. Extremely floriforous Mambo petunias literally smother themselves in flowers, making an outstanding display in gardens.They are very wheather/rain resistant as after a rain shower, flowers popping back quickly to full beauty. It makes Mambo also an excellent type of petunia for hanging baskets. Three new colors are added, sky blue, plum and blue veined bringing the total number of colors to twenty two and two mixtures.
