An update to my previous review - I treated for pests and fungus, and a few weeks later they were beautiful! I did have to repeatedly treat for fungus and pests over the rest of the summer.

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 Mini Vista® Hot Pink Petunia hybrid 'USTUN2401M' USPP 29,664, Can 6,057

I’m so disappointed in the Mini Vista Hot Pink I ordered from Proven Winners! I ordered them early spring, planning on planting them in mid to late May. My Mini Vista White order was cancelled by the company due to a disease problem apparently, and my Mini Vista Hot Pink didn’t arrive until well into June. A month later, they are still very small with zero to three little flowers per plant One died, having white moldy looking stuff at the base. And yes, they are in full sun, good soil, are watered regularly, and get fertilized with special fertilizer meant to increase blooms every week or two. But still they look pretty pathetic.Patty Rombalski, Michigan, United States, 26 weeks ago
This is the most bloom for the longest period of time of any annual I have ever grown! I put 3 in the ground in May and they have mounded to form a short hedge 9 feet in length. It is now October and they look like they will make it to frost. Usually I would have replaced my front flowers with fall mums by now, but these super bells just won't quit!Madalyn Conroy, Indiana, United States, 3 years ago
