    Features

    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.

    • Sticks in dirt. I know these are propagated but I received 5 that were sticks in dirt. Yes there were roots but only in the first inch or so of container. Been babying the sticks for almost a month. Maybe by first frost they will start to grow or maybe fully die next week. Don't bother with customer service. They promised to refund me for items they charged me for but didn't have and didn't ship, and that hasn't happened either. Proven winners made me a Proven Loser. I dare you to post a real review.

    • I purchased Snowdrift last year and planted them along with Paradise. After a month into the season, Snowdrift took over and left Paradise behind. These are fantastic petunias, they lasted until November! Will be back at my garden center for more this season.

    • I'm in love! I wanted a vigorous white annual to border my driveway, and Snowdrift is the perfect title for the plant! I have a sunny but wooded yard, and the white supertunia is a perfect highlight to direct people to our driveway. I get compliments on it all the time. Trust that this annual will get to the advertised size! Snowdrift is this gorgeous, overflowing drift I created by planting ONE four inch plug every three feet along my driveway. I treat my annuals with water soluble fertilizer about once a week. I'll be getting even more next year!

    • 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.

    • Wow! Amazingly huge plant that is packed with continual beautiful blooms. Has looked beautiful since the day I planted it 3 months 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!

    • 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.
