Great plant. I have planted this 2 years and the plant is vigorous and holds up better than other Vistas under rain. It takes a little longer to reach maximum size but continues to bloom until frost? Although the plant does not require deadheading their appearance is improved by removing spent flowers as they turn brown and are noticeable.

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.Award WinnerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryAttracts:ButterfliesHummingbirds

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® Snowdrift™ Petunia hybrid 'BBTUN04401' USPP 32,687, Can PBRAF

I love the vista series of petunias and they have become a must have for my hanging pots due to the size. I was thrilled to learn of a new color and well talk about a disappointment! All my other petunias were larger and more full than my vista snowdrifts. I also planted some in my landscaping and same situation outside they were better than my baskets. I have everything on drip and I fertilize habitually and I’m just soo bummed!Samantha, Minnesota, United States, 25 weeks ago
Wow! Amazingly huge plant that is packed with continual beautiful blooms. Has looked beautiful since the day I planted it 3 months ago.Audrey Yelen, Tennessee, United States, 1 year ago
These were every bit the performers I was hoping for! One box seemed to take a tumble during shipment, and some had clearly fallen completely out of their containers since they were laying sideways and the rootball only looked to be about 1" cube. I planted them all anyway and crossed my fingers. Not only did every single one survive but they are still all thriving! They have been blooming more and more since their planting date, no deadheading required. Unlike a lot of annuals with white blooms, these don't get brown on the petals, they just wilt and fall off on their own so they look fantastic all the time. Highly recommend!Mary, Washington, United States, 1 year ago
I was over the moon excited to find this new vista series petunia in my local garden center after seeing it featured on my favorite youtube channel last year - Garden Answer. In mid April I bought up all their larger pots (10 inch) and then purchased the 4 inch cans to supplement the other areas of my landscape and planters. I constantly catch people walking, driving and biking by our house and pointing at the display of amazing white flowers. These are absolutely stunning and over achieved my expectations 10 fold.Lauren Connor, New Jersey, United States, 1 year ago
