    The Best Petunia. Period.® 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.

    • Literally the best petunia you can grow!!! They grow substantially larger than any others! They’re a 10/10 every time. Plant them in the ground and they perform just as exceptional, if not better, than potted.

    • Buyer beware!!! Love Proven winner annuals. The company however does not have good customer service. Will definitely not purchase product directly from them or in stores. Does not stand behind product!

    • Outstanding plants, I’ve been planting these for a few years now instead of waves, they do great and hold up longer than the others, I also sell em at my store and I’m always trying to get peaple on to them! Every year I always bring in new colors and do different combos, but bubblegum is the one I plant in masses.

    • This is the very best plant that I have ever grown. I have planted it in my container gardens for the last 7 years and have gotten better performance from it, year after year. I have also received more compliments on it, year after year. This flower grows with minimal attention, however if you give it a little attention you will have a star in your garden. I know that the plants are a little “pricey”, but trust me this will perform as if you have purchased at least 4 plants, if not more. I adore my pink bubblegum petunias.

    • I have my Supertunia Vista Bubblegum for 2 years now together with my Bordeaux. At first, I thought they're going to be annual in my zone which is 9a and by accident I didn't clean them up during winter out of laziness and to my surprise the next year they came back for me. Love this flowers!

    • Planted these along both sides of my driveway entrance, and loved it. Bloomed spring through summer, and made such a pretty, sparkly welcome home. I'm going to try a white variety next season!

    • Amazing blooms, easy to care, made a mound of flowers in ground in my backyard. Wish I could add pictures. I bought it from local Home Depot.

    • If you are a beginner gardener like me but want to grow/feel like a pro, buy supertunia vista bubblegum. I put 3 small ones in a container 4 weeks ago that only had 3 blooms on them and now they are huge and full of blooms. A very nice filler and spiller in a container- they are a must!

    • These are the most amazing petunias I have ever seen! Keep them evenly watered and well-fed during the summer, and give them plenty of space in the flower bed. I planted 18 plants last summer and they looked and performed wonderfully even in 100 degree weather. Half of the plants also survived the winter in Dallas, TX including the Polar Vortex (2 degrees above zero) in February 2021. Proven Winners might consider revising its hardiness rating for this variety!

    • You cannot go wrong with any of the Vista series, but if you can only get one, make it this one. I highly recommend getting at least three, Bubblegum, Fuchsia, and Silverberry, but this is the most vigorous, productive plant. It is the star of the aforementioned combination, and the other two are the beautiful co-stars. As mentioned in my other review, the deer did not like to eat these flowers, a huge bonus for me. Only one plant is needed to make a big statement in a pot, but that statement is amplified when combined with Fuchsia and Silverberry. To me, the three are virtually inseparable. Vista Bubblegum is quite possibly one of the best flowering plants I know. It even does well past frosts. The plant does tend to get a little tattered after a frost, but it still produces lovely color at a distance and continues to bloom.
