Twenty years ago, Surfinia was well on its way to becoming a household name with gardening consumers in Europe as it revolutionized the hanging basket market by providing such good value for the money.

Across central Europe, it took the place of ivy geraniums on balconies in Austria, Switzerland and Germany, whereas before no other plant tolerated the extreme conditions of summer heat and heavy rain. It just looked fantastic hanging down in window boxes and baskets and it went on and on performing. Surfinia’s weather tolerance to the English cool summers was fantastic. The plant’s ability to flower back up the stems was another.
