I planted two Vista Fuchsia plants in each of three 16" hanging pots. They do not trail as readily as Bubblegum or Silverberry, but eventually they covered over the sides of the pots. I kept them watered and fertilized and by the end of summer they were big beautiful mounds of color. They have remained full and lush, even into the cooler fall weather we're having now. I am very pleased with them.

The optimum amount of sun or shade each plant needs to thrive: Full Sun (6+ hours), Part Sun (4-6 hours), Full Shade (up to 4 hours).
FeaturesI do WONDERFUL things for a yard's SELF-ESTEEM.
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 SellerContinuous Bloom or RebloomerLong BloomingHeat TolerantDeadheading Not NecessaryAttracts:ButterfliesHummingbirds

Use in large containers, combinations and landscapes. This is an outstanding landscape plant that will knock your socks off with bounties of blooms all season long. Pairs well with other vigorous plants in combinations.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 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 and any other Supertunia? Never mind. A Supertunia Vista is a Petunia. As in we're 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® Fuchsia Petunia hybrid 'BHTUN65301' USPP 28,457, Can 5,785

My favourite pink petunia out of all I’ve grown this season. I planted it a month after the bubblegum and it’s the same size: Very vigorousR M, British Columbia, Canada, 1 year ago
Very floriferous and pretty much self cleaning. Both plants were planted in separate combo containers. About 10 days ago, one needed to be moved to another container and was cut back because of the really hot days and it is already blooming again and full of buds. The other hasn't quit blooming since it started. They really are performing as advertised here.Angele, New Mexico, United States, 2 years ago
