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.Best SellerAward WinnerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryDrought TolerantAttracts: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 -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.Supertunia Vista® Bubblegum® Petunia hybrid 'USTUNI6001' USPP 17,730, Can 2,871

Yes, it’s nice and vigorous, but compared to the other Supertunia varieties I tried this year, I found that I was looking less for “monster grower” than I thought. Bubblegum got leggy, and mine broke entire stems off when it was stormy and windy - more than trailing Silver variety a few feet away. It was also so busy extending the stems that it could get barer in the middle. Rockin’ playing the blues salvia is keeping up nicely with it in my railing planter. It’s right at eye level three feet away from my chair for me; maybe it works better viewing it from farther away or from below. Bubblegum does need comparatively more water than my other Supertunias. Overall, this is certainly a great choice, but don’t be afraid to try another variety or two - you can’t go wrong with Bubblegum, but you might go more “right” with another variety or vista especially if this shade of pink isn’t spot on to your taste.Kerry, Colorado, United States, 7 weeks ago
Literally the best petunia you can grow!!! They grow substantially larger than any others! They’re a 10/10 every time. Plant them in the ground and they perform just as exceptional, if not better, than potted.Niya Gross, Michigan, United States, 13 weeks ago
Buyer beware!!! Love Proven winner annuals. The company however does not have good customer service. Will definitely not purchase product directly from them or in stores. Does not stand behind product!Julie Underwood, Tennessee, United States, 14 weeks ago
Outstanding plants, I’ve been planting these for a few years now instead of waves, they do great and hold up longer than the others, I also sell em at my store and I’m always trying to get peaple on to them! Every year I always bring in new colors and do different combos, but bubblegum is the one I plant in masses.Heath, Louisiana, United States, 25 weeks ago
This is the very best plant that I have ever grown. I have planted it in my container gardens for the last 7 years and have gotten better performance from it, year after year. I have also received more compliments on it, year after year. This flower grows with minimal attention, however if you give it a little attention you will have a star in your garden. I know that the plants are a little “pricey”, but trust me this will perform as if you have purchased at least 4 plants, if not more. I adore my pink bubblegum petunias.Kathy Frugoli, Illinois, United States, 26 weeks ago
I have my Supertunia Vista Bubblegum for 2 years now together with my Bordeaux. At first, I thought they're going to be annual in my zone which is 9a and by accident I didn't clean them up during winter out of laziness and to my surprise the next year they came back for me. Love this flowers!Jade, California, United States, 28 weeks ago
Planted these along both sides of my driveway entrance, and loved it. Bloomed spring through summer, and made such a pretty, sparkly welcome home. I'm going to try a white variety next season!Kate, Georgia, United States, 40 weeks ago
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.Harbir Arora, Canada, 1 year ago
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!Adrian, Florida, United States, 1 year ago
