The ‘Doppio Allegretta Mix’ petunias growing in the garden this year were easily one of the plants that I was most excited about. After having quite a bit of success using heirloom petunias as cut flowers, I knew immediately that I wanted to grow these doubles.
Like other heirloom varieties of petunia, the stems of these plants get quite tall. They also have an amazing vase life. Though the ‘Doppio Allegretta Mix’ was technically a “mix” of colors, my variety was very limited. In fact, almost all of the flowers were this very nice shade of lavender with darker veining.
As with many double flowers, some of the blooms were single. Despite this, each were equally beautiful. I think that the double blooms are really something special.

I’ve never grown petunia from seed before, but I started a few that are supposed to be highly scented. They’re doing well. Fingers crossed!
Could you share where you sourced the seed from? I’d love to give them a try!
