What French growers think of the Petunia Sanguna series

Syngenta Flowers wants varieties that perform well for growers and in the field. So every year, in France, four reference growers (Catherine Oriot, Pierre Carté, Gaby Tricoire and Olivier Duchamp) in four locations across the country test all new varieties and sales reps come to see the results.

They recently trialled varieties of Petunia Sanguna and this is just a taste of what they told Syngenta:
  • Sanguna Mega Purple – large flowered, two weeks earlier than the competition, good trailing habit.
  • Sanguna Radiant Dark Blue and Sanguna Patio Radiant Dark Blue – twin brothers with a different habit, a nice contrast in the flowers and a must-have for the 2019 season for their flowering stability, all-summer long.
  • Sanguna Deep Lavender vein – very early, a multitude of medium-sized flowers in striking colours.
  • Sanguna Rose and Sanguna White – a new generation with slightly bigger flowers and earlier flowering.
  • Sanguna Purple Picotee – the most contrasting colours, purple with a white edge, ideal for impulse sales.
These new genetics have stable colours flowering all-summer long and a perfect habit for hanging baskets.
