    Features

    Garden VALEDICTORIAN.

    Supertunia Vista petunias are very vigorous, with mounding habits that can reach up to 2 feet in height in the landscape and will trail over the edges of baskets and containers up to 4 feet by the end of the season.  They are fantastic landscape plants and are great in large containers, where they function as both fillers and spillers.  In garden beds, they will work either in the front or middle of the bed.  They have medium-sized flowers.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    These are heat tolerant plants, that aren't particularly fussy and need little routine maintenance. They will perform best if an application of controlled release fertilizer is included at the time of planting. This applies to both landscape and container plantings. Supertunias are heavy feeders, but a single dose is usually sufficient for landscape beds in most climates. If you have a very long season, a second application of controlled release plant food should be considered for landscape plantings. In general, containers need to be fed more than landscape plants. Supertunias in containers will need to be fed more regularly to be their absolute best. A second application of a controlled release fertilizer can be applied about every two months to container plants, which will help. However, for the very best performance I find regularly applying water soluble fertilizer starting about two months after the containers are planted gives the best results.  These extra applications of plant food really makes a difference in performance through the summer.

    If your plant begins to look open or a bit tired, an allover trim can be beneficial.  Use a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears to trim back up to 1/3 of the volume of the plant. I pair any trim with a dose of water soluble fertilizer to provide instant energy to help kickstart new growth, branching and flowering. Your plant will take a week to recover from the trim, but the end result is a fuller plant with more blooms going forward. You may repeat the trim as needed through the season.

    Supertunia Vista -The best petunia for landscapes. Hands down. Supertunia® Vista varieties deliver an outstanding performance over the entire season, lasting an extra month in southern states and well into fall in moderate climates. They are bred to flower earlier, grow taller and wider, and grow more vigorously than other Supertunia®.

    The Best Petunia. Period.® Whats the difference between a Supertunia Vista Bubblegum and any other Supertunia? You can see my bubbles from a l-o-o-o-n-g way off. Vista, a distant view or prospect. Bubbles, bubblegum. Never mind. A Supertunia Vista is a Petunia. As in were way vigorous and have a mounding/cascading habit.

    So in a garden bed, border, or landscape feature we grow 16 - 24 inches tall, and spread w-a-a-y out. As much as 2 feet. You want to fill an area with wall-to-wall medium pink flowers all season? I'm your plant. Hanging baskets, window boxes, patio containers, same story.

    You know what else is totally wicked? I'm disease resistant, self-cleaning, and have sturdy stems so I always look good. I'm an annual except in zones 10 - 11. Full sun, water and a good fertilizer will keep me in the pink until frost.

    • I planted these for the first time and boy they took off. I planted 2 they trailed over my other plants but I love them!!! Next year I will give more space I didn’t realize how big they get . I fed them water soluble fertilizer every two weeks and water them 2-3 times a week. I’m going to try them in a basket as well to see how they do next year. I found my favorite flowers!! They are a show stopper for sure!!!

    • Outstanding color in my sunny garden. It has filled in its space nicely, but needs frequent feeding or it gets pale foliage and reduced blooming.

    • I grew Vista Paradise in large pots in 2019 along with Vista Bubblegum (one of each). While both plants are rated 4 in vigor, I found that Vista Bubblegum still took over and dominated the planter. But Vista Paradise had the most beautiful color and remained healthy throughout the season. It also didn't get as leggy as Bubblegum and didn't require as much cutting back mid season. This year I will try Vista Paradise with a different Vista plant, perhaps Silverberry or Snowdrift and see how well they perform together.

    • I needed a supertunia that would perform well with supervista bubblegum. Paradise has met my expectations. While other supertunias get swallowed up by August, Paradise still has a bold prescence in the mixed combo installations. #playswellwithbubblegum

    • I put Paradise with Bubble Gum and Silverberry in my large hanging baskets for a great look. They have done extremely well and bloom their little hearts out. Just don't let them get too dry. Water and feed consistently. No better petunias.

    • Picked one up in April 2019, as it reminded me of a one time favorite called Watermelon Charm. A little more pink than pure red but the blooms on this plant are brilliant and aplenty. Hasn't taken off yet in terms of growth the way my Vista Silverberry, Honey or Really Red supertunias have but it sure makes up for it with powerful blooms. Like all PW supertunias I have grown the last 5 years, I expect this one will thrive and bloom all summer, needing just regular watering, plenty of sun and the occasional drop of fertilizer. Definitely recommend as an eye popping burst of color.

    • Grew supertunia’s this past season and surprise they on their way to over-wintering in Zone8. They withstood the low 20s early on without any cover. Now working to keep them for a second season. Simply amazing plants.
