Compared to regular petunias, these are great. They keep blooming without deadheading and don't get quite as leggy and sad. However, compared to other supertunias such as Bordeaux or Paradise, these are just ok. They're not as covered in blooms, and the blooms themselves are small, so there is a lot more foliage than flowers. The foliage itself isn't as pretty as other varieties, kind of a yellowish green with very small leaves. It is definitely possible they would do better with more sun, but my neighbor has some in a sunnier spot than mine, and they look the same.

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® Daybreak Charm produces loads of vibrant watermelon pink flowers with a sunshine yellow throat on densely branched plants all summer long without deadheading.

Beautiful! Just planted a month ago and growing and spreading nicely! So pretty with the pink and yellow center. Some are in full sun and some are part sun. All doing wonderfully! Will definitely plant again!!!Sue B, Ohio, United States, 9 weeks ago
I planted two Daybreak Charms plants in a 14" hanging pot. They grew rapidly and are a beautiful color. Daybreak Charm is more of a mounder than a trailer. They don't cascade down very much and they do get leggy if you don't prune them to keep them bushy.Karen Muse, Michigan, United States, 50 weeks ago
Not my favorite color but I am learning to cope. I was gifted two plants and had two winter-over from last year in zone 9b. The two old ones in the ground have no leaves, just a carpet of blooms. The two in the pot are paired with Paradise Visa and Red-coral Superbena. The Daybreak charm mounds in the pot and the rest spill over the muted turquoise ceramic pot. It's July and this plant grows and blooms as long as it is well fed. The yellow throat is not that apparent so I am thinking of pairing Whiteout Superbena with Daybreak? I'll keep trying combinations. This plant's vigor and performance is exceptional.Peggie Who, California, United States, 2 years ago
I love them!!! So beautiful and easy to care for. I wish I could share my picture of them.Rebecca Claycomb, North Carolina, United States, 2 years ago
This year was the first time I’ve purchased these, and so far they have outgrown anything I’ve ever grown before, including: Pink Star Charm Vista Bubblegum Bordeaux Black Cherry Silverberry Trailing Strawberry Pink Veined And all other vigorous proven winner plants I’ve owned If you want a vigorous petunia that just keeps growing in Minnesota and other cold, rainy and short growing seasons, (where nights can easily be wet and stay in the low to mid 30s until June) I recommend this plant. It’s already snuffing out my other “vigorous” plants in the same container. In Minnesota, my rule of thumb whatever the mature size is on the website, half it. This is my first plant that is larger than the mature size and I’ve only had it potted for 4 weeks.Kyle, Minnesota, United States, 3 years ago
I actually bought this one by mistake and I love it. I have just one growing in a pot and it is a lovely filler/spiller. Its just huge and goes well with Lemon Ball sedum, a dark coleus and small Chamaecyparis Golden Mop. Stunning.Beverly Lambert, Minnesota, United States, 4 years ago
My sister purchased this. It is so cheery; it adds a beautiful spark to the garden.Joy, 5 years ago
I live in a hot climate and these need to be planted early and well established by the time the brutal summer heat kicks in, or they should go in containers. Both of mine died as I planted them in raised beds which are well drained, but neither survived the week long rain spell in June. Very pretty flowers but sensitive to drowning and heat.Timothy Kelley, Louisiana, United States, 5 years ago
This year was the first time we tried this charm, and so far it has done well. I've yet to see them lose a bloom, and they are mounding beautifully. It looks as if we have another "proven winner!"Audrey Kill, Michigan, United States, 5 years ago
