A hardy, reseeding annual variety native to South America. The Laura Bush Petunia goes "Hollywood" with a new color dimension: iridescent pink.

The intolerable shaped flowers to burst into a breathtaking display of color. Prefers full sun in well drained, fertile soil. Very low maintenance and quite impressive!
