    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.

    • 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.

    • O.M.G. I am new to gardening and these encourage me to learn and plant more. Bubblegum Supertunia Vistas are the best summer flower without a doubt! One single plant becomes a show stopper! NON STOP BLOOMS ALL SEASON! My heart is happy. Thank you Proven Winners.

    • Tried the Vista series for 1st time. I’ve tried other Supertunias before in my hanging baskets with limited success. Usually by this time in June, they are looking haggard and performing poorly. Not these Vistas !! Will definitely be my choice in the future! Just need a few more colors.

    • Purchased 3 of these at a local garden center. 1 went in a hanging basket with supertnia Bordeaux, sweet potato vine, and lantana. The 2nd went in a container with same plants less the lantana. The last 1 hasn't been planted yet and gets full sun where the others are partial sun. The one in full sun is growing almost twice as quickly. All have been cut back and look beautiful with new growth. Super impressed with this plant! Zone 7b.

    • So the Supertunias themselves are great. Every year I drive to a greenhouse that is 1.5 hours away from me to buy 40 of them for my window boxes and planters. Although I love the greenhouse, I'm hoping to find a way to save time on travel for future years and so I ordered some directionally from the Proven Winners website to see how they compared to the Bubblegum Supertunia plants I buy from my local greenhouse. What a difference in a horrible way! I wish I could include a picture of the supertunias I bought from Proven Winners vs the supertunias I bought from my local greenhouse. The plants from the Proven Winners website are only greenery, very small, and $8.95 each. The supertunias that I bought from the greenhouse, have a ton of blooms, they're big, bushy, and were $4.50 each.
