    I have BEAUTY and BRAWN.

    Supertunia petunias are vigorous with slightly mounded habits that function as both fillers and spillers in containers.  They are also excellent landscape plants, best suited to be placed near the front of beds.  They have medium to large 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.

    • Very Pretty Accent Color Plant - I bought a Supertunia mixed container from my local garden center. The Persimmon might not be the brightest colored Supertunia on its own, but it adds a really nice pop of color in a mixed container. The mix I bought used Persimmon, Honey, and Vista Fuchsia Supertunias together and I think it's a fantastic mix of color. The Persimmon ties the other two colors together. I also found that using a bloom boosting fertilizer regularly helps all of the colors be more vibrant.

    • I have to agree w/one of the reviews in that the color of the plant is a muddy pale orange.. It is not like th e photo of what it should look like.. The plant seemed vigorous and well rooted. but the color was for sure not what i envisioned when i planned out my large pot in the color combinations that i wanted to achieve.. There was not another place for me to put this plant in my container garden as it fit into no other color plan that i am growing this season.....Very disappointed.

    • GOREGOUS COLORS! Buy this variety... you won't regret it! It is growing beautifully. My only regret is not using it in more areas!

    • I love Supertunia Persimmon!! I'm in North Texas and I planted it in a tiered container about 5-6 weeks ago, and it's taking off!! I love the vibrant color! I think it's interesting how all of the blooms face the same direction, but fortunately for me they all face my street and sidewalk so we can all enjoy them!! Great plant, I'd love to get more.

    • I was so excited about this new supertunia based on its photos. However in-person this is the most under-whelming proven winners plant I’ve grown. The color is very dull and the back of the petals are very pale and unattractive. The plants are growing decently well, but color is nothing like the photos. A big waste of $$$ which is sad because I’ve loved every proven winner I’ve tried until this plant.
