This year, MNP Flowers and Suntory celebrate the 30th anniversary of Surfinia.
While most flower breeders selected varieties that produce seed, Suntory has been focusing on plants with high garden performance and impact. Therefore, Suntory has always been the category creator, bringing new plants on the market. One of their biggest introductions was the first vigorous, vegetative Petunia, demonstrating superior landscape performance. MNP flowers obtained the European rights for this revolutionary plant, and launched it in 1991 onto the European market under the name Surfinia.
The early trailing Surfinia collection is the second and improved generation of trailing Surfinia varieties. Not only do they accommodate the characteristics of the classic Surfinia collection, such as good branching, vigorous growing habit and a very strong performance outdoors, but moreover they are the most early blooming of all Surfinia varieties.
