Tumbelina Priscilla – The world’s first double trailing petunia

Here at Unwins we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the launch of this unique star of the plant-world.

Bred by Priscilla Kerley under the guidance of husband David Kerley, 23-years Unwins Commercial Director during 70s-90s, this double and trailing petunia had humble origins in his 12x10ft garden greenhouse….

It’s now an unbeatable bestseller enjoying worldwide success!

Its sales went through the roof since its launch, exclusive to Unwins in 1997 starting from 105,000 sales that year and since in excess of tens of millions. It enjoys worldwide success, heavily-demanded in more than 25 countries from Canada to Germany and Japan to Australia.

RHS Chelsea Flower Show exhibit and precursor of more than 25 other Tumbelina varieties Priscilla is by far the most-sought after. Combining colour and class, it’s hardly surprising! 

Here are just some of its amazing attributes;

  •          Prolific flowerer
  •          Fragrant
  •          Weather-tolerant
  •          RHS Award of Garden Merit
  •          Season-long display

These flowers are delivered to you as young plants that are around 12cm (5in) from root to tip.

Plants at this stage are at the perfect stage of development to grow and flower really fast once planted.

If you receive your plants before April pot up into larger pots and plant out into containers or beds from April onwards.

On a pleasant and dry spring or summer day plant out into soil and water well. As the plants start to flower add a high potassium fertiliser to give your flowers a real boost.



  • Good in containers and pots
  • Good in hanging baskets
  • Will flower well in full sun
