The Genetics of Petunia

  • André Cornu
  • Daniel Maizonnier


Petunia hybrida Hort. is a horticultural species derived from P. axillaris and P. integrifolia, which were introduced into Europe between 1820 and 1835; P. hybrida apparently was synthesized in England. The interspecific hybrid has undergone continuous selection that so far has yielded several hundred cultivars. The modern Petunia is one of the most popular and widespread flowering herbaceous ornamentals, especially in the United States.
