    Features

    I'm more "LOW MAINTENANCE" than your OTHER relationships.

    Supertunia Mini Vista petunias are mounded, but will also spill over the edges of containers.  They are great container plants and will function as both spillers and fillers in combination planters.  They are incredibly good landscape plants, best used at the front of beds.  They are very densely branched plants.  They have small to very small flowers.  They are a great substitute for Calibrachoa in landscapes without excellent drainage – Calibrachoa requires excellent drainage to thrive, while petunias are much more forgiving.

    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.

    Supertunia® Mini Vista - For a picture perfect hanging basket or container, try the Supertunia® Mini Vista. They grow vigorously and are absolutely covered in cheerful blooms from spring into fall. You can even try them in your sunny landscape where they’ll put on an impressive show of color all season.

    • I have always had great success with PW plants, but this beauty really did outperform. The color is a vivid purple.not !he blue you might imagine. I planted 7 morning blues as a ground cover in a 4x20 sunny bed. They more than covered the entire space. What a show!

    • We tried this plant in lieu of our tried and true sangria charms. Though they were nice, they did not fill in as well as the sangria's did.

    • This plant was trialed at the University of Illinois Champaign County Master Gardener's trial garden and was the top scoring plant (tying with Lobularia 'Dark Knight') of the 106 plants we trialed. BOTH were Gold Medal Winners. The 'Charm' series have smaller blooms but are powerhouses of flowering. This one was flooded with colorful white/silver backed lavender blooms dotted with a white eye. An EYE catcher it was, as it spilled color in a waterfall of blooms the whole season, requiring NO deadheading! - Does NOT have the "regular" petunia problem of "petunia on a stick" = in mid/ late summer the plant stretches out with jagged brown stems& a pitiful flower at the end without regular deadheading and pampering. THIS Morning Glory Charm greeted us with bright colors and bubbled away in a mound of blooms through the end of September. It was also awarded a "September Show Stopper" award.
