    Features

    Consider me FLOWER therapy.

    Supertunia Vista petunias are one of the best garden plants around. They are large, mounding and spreading plants. They are usually so buried in flowers that foliage is almost invisible. They are wonderful landscape plants, where they put on quite a show. They are also great in large containers. If you are looking for an all out show of color, this is the plant for you.

    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.

    • You HAVE to buy this next year! - I know I will!! SO JAZZED about 'Vista Jazzberry'!!! Grew this at the Univ of IL Master Gardeners Idea Garden- it was OVER THE TOP FABULOUS. Electric fuchsia blooms flooded the plant which is full, vigorous and covers ground with brilliant delight! The Vista petunias are all great- Bubblegum a lighter pink Super Star that I said in the past is like the Engergizer Bunny- it just keeps "on going and going" churning out blooms with no evidence of the spent blooms.... Well, its cousin 'Vista Jazzberry' is all that with brilliant fuchsia color!! Tolerated heavy rains, a bit of too damp soil, drenching hot humid weather,. a few bunny attacks, and just KEPT GOING AND GOING- like a brilliant magenta beacon. Tough and vigorous. One of our three favorite annuals this year.
