Large-flowered petunias remain favorites in the design of suburban flower beds and urban landscaping. Of the new varieties and hybrids, the unique series of petunias - “The Imperial Family” attracts admirable attention with their colors and impeccable edging. But the merits of these petunias are not limited to the beauty of flowering. Hybrid imperial petunias are also remarkable for their stamina.
The Imperial Family series - delightful hybrid large-flowered petunias belonging to the picotee category - characterized by a wide contrasting border. This is a generation of new hybrids of selection of the Italian company "Farao" with outstanding characteristics. A masterpiece of Italian masters is represented in our market by AELITA agricultural firm.
Petunias from the Imperial Family series are densely branched, dense, compact plants with upright bushes up to 30 cm high and very large, up to 10 cm in diameter, flowers with a ruffled edge. These petunias are characterized by very fast growth and almost perfect hemispherical shape of separately growing bushes that do not need to be formed due to branching of shoots from the base. The flowering of petunias from the Imperial Family series continues tirelessly, allowing you to admire the beauty of plants from May to the end of the season. These petunias can bloom already at the seedling stage.
The color palette of the petunia of the Imperial Family series offers to enjoy rich shades of various colors. Five really bright options of red, raspberry, purple, violet and cherry in a dazzling snow-white edging cannot but attract attention. Neat ruffles along the edge of the corolla only emphasize the contrast.
The series “The Imperial Family” from AELITA Agricultural Company includes large-flowered petunias, named after Empress Alexandra and the four daughters of the last Russian emperor for their regal beauty.
Petunia "Alexandra F1" Conquers with a combination of rich red color with a large white edging and beautiful ruffles, surprising almost even lines of the border of flowers. The combination of shades is dazzling and contrasting, snow-white shades the fiery expression of the middle of the flower.
Petunia "Olga F1" offers to admire the dark wine-maroon shades of red. A clean and velvety-sophisticated version of the Burgundy color shines with an almost as wide white border as that of the Alexander F1 petunia (the edging goes into the main color not with a smooth, but with a wavy line). Due to the white edging, the texture seems even more velvety.
Petunia "Tatyana F1" is one of the brightest petunias with a cold and dark blue-violet color. A purer shade can not be found even among sages. The border around the edge of the petals is uneven and thin enough, which enhances the resemblance to sea foam and further reveals the depth and saturation of the base tone.
Petunia "Maria F1" - one of the brightest pink-colored petunias. The rich pink color with a raspberry shade seems both pastoral and acrylic bright at the same time. The edging is very thin and uneven, it animates the appearance of the flower, but does not dominate and does not create a ripple effect. White throat gives the whole flower of romance.
Petunia "Anastasia F1" - An example of a unique dark purple in the color of garden summers, from which it is impossible to take your eyes off. The cold lilac-pink tone due to the uneven, lace white edging and dark veins along the petals turns this petunia into one of the most noble in color.

The unique endurance of these hybrid petunias was obtained as a result of complex selection. Years of research have endowed the petunias of the “imperial family” with a male sterility gene, which has deprived them of the ability to form seeds and thereby extend the flowering time and quality. The petunias of this series are distinguished by a compacted velvet texture of the petals, and better bushiness, and accelerated growth, and the unique stability of the edging that appears on each flower.
One of the most valuable qualities of the Imperial Family series petunias is increased endurance and resistance to adverse conditions. Despite the beauty of the flowers, these petunias are drought tolerant, not afraid of wind and drafts, temperature fluctuations, severe cooling, and even rain.
