New for 2017 - SUPERTUNIA® Picasso in Purple

The fourth in a wildly popular series, meet the phenomenal new Supertunia® Picasso in Purple.

Contributors: Susan Martin

Supertunia® Picasso in Purple features vibrant magenta purple flowers with green frosted tips which play off of the deeper green foliage. Though the flowers are similar to Pretty Much Picasso®, the plant habit is much more densely branched and mounded like the popular Supertunia® Honey, and it is covered in flowers from spring into fall without deadheading.

Like all Supertunia® Petunias, it exhibits tremendous heat and humidity tolerance, thriving in hanging baskets and combinations planters all season long. 6-12” tall x 18-24” spread. Part sun to sun.

What’s New: A color expansion to the popular Supertunia® Picasso line and a more refined habit compared to Supertunia® Pretty Much Picasso®.

Uses for Supertunia® Picasso in Purple: Its tightly mounded habit makes this plant ideal for upright containers, hanging basket combinations and monoculture containers. It also performs well in landscapes, perhaps best used alongside a walkway or patio where its unique flowers can be appreciated up close. 

Branded Packaging: Supertunia® Picasso in Purple is offered in the Proven Package including the white Proven Winners branded container and an attractive foil coat label that is sure to garner attention at retail. 

Grower Tips for Supertunia® Picasso varieties:

  • Timing: Target for early season through summer sales
  • Requires high light in production. Fewer flowers will be produced in part sun.
  • Feed with 250ppm fertilizer while watching pH and EC rates.
  • Yellow leaves often indicate an iron shortage in response to too high of a pH.
  • Do not bring in too early; plants are sensitive to cold temperatures.
