Petunia x violacea ‘Laura Bush’ Laura Bush Petunia

Petunia x violacea ‘Laura Bush’ is named after our 43rd President George W. Bush’s wife Laura. This variety is a cross between the V.I.P. Petunia and the Old Fashioned Petunia. ‘Laura Bush’ produces fragrant violet flowers from Spring until frost and is a prolific grower, it should be trimmed about once a month to keep the plant compact. This petunia will reseed true to type every year. This particular variety was bred and developed in San Antonio, Texas and is more cold tolerant, disease resistant, and heat tolerant than most of the modern Petunias of today. This Petunia can get 24″ tall and 36″ wide. ‘Laura Bush’ has also been know to thrive in alkaline soils, Wow what a plant!!
