    Features

    Consider me PLANT therapy.

    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.

    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®.

    • This plant is awesome. I love its ultra light pink colored blooms with the pink and purple veins in the throat. They are very prolific, although they do not seem to be able to perform to the level of the Bubblegum Vista. The are still able perform in the same container as the Bubblegum and make a beautiful combination in conjunction with Vista Fuschia. PW Supertunias last much later in the season than normal petunias; I actually have pictures of my Silverberry petunias with a layer of snow on them. They are still alive following several frosts and that snow fall. They are a tough, prolific, and beautiful flower. I highly recommend growing this beautiful flower.

    • I planted one Silverberry plant in each of two hanging pots. The grew rapidly and soon were tumbling down the sides of the pots. They were full of blooms. Each plant grew almost three feet across and made a beautiful display. I was so pleased with them. The only drawback to these plants is that they don't tolerate the cooler fall weather as well as other supertunia varieties I have. Once we got into September the blooms got smaller and less numerous, and the plants don't look as happy.

    • Compared with bubblegum and paradise, this variety is lackluster. Fewer blooms and not nearly as vigorous. Unlike the other two varieties I mentioned, Silverberry was absolutely swamped by the sweet potato vine I paired it with in a large planter.

    • This is the first year I've grown this plant, but it won't be the last! I saw it early in the season on a private garden tour and then purchased several for my own garden. Two plants planted in one 3 foot window box filled in within weeks and provided a huge display that is still blooming into November after several hard frosts. It was also useful in large and small pots on my porch and terrace. I love white flowers because they are a rest to the eyes and appear cool in the heat of summer. Silverberry also provides just that little touch of pink that is very pleasing and which blends with almost anything. This plant has been in constant bloom since early May (6 months), is pretty both at close inspection and from a distance, needs no grooming at all and it grows to be a lovely spreading plant with no effort on my part. I will absolutely search it out next year and use more of it.

    • Beautiful plant but be forewarned this plant is a very aggressive grower and will overpower any other plant you have in your container. Grow it by itself and you will not be disappointed.

    • I stumbled on this by accident, mid summer. One of my white petunias died, and I went to the garden center to find a replacement. It being late in the season, there were not all the choices normally there. There were no whites. I decided this Vista Silverberry looked the closest to white, so with a little reservation, I bought the plant. It turned out to be the best accidental plant purchase I ever made. It is gorgeous. It sparkles. It is incredibly vigorous. It spread a full four feet (or more), and it was not scraggly. It had a low mounding habit that stretched out so far. It did not fade at all even in the heat of the summer. It was in dappled shade , not the best for petunias, but that did not bother this gangbuster plant. I search this one out, as it sells out. I have even asked employees if they have any in the back that are not on display because they don't have flowers yet. If they do, I stock up ... they don't seem to mind trecking to the back 50 acres to retrieve them for me. the only downside is they don't like too much rain. They handle too much sun and heat better than a stretch of cloudy , rainy days. They definitely need well drained soil. oh, and I seem to always hove some that survive the winter. this spring, I have four or five. They are just awesome plants that sparkle in the yard and spread like nowbody's business, always full and beautiful, always in bloom. i have found no other petunia like it. I used to get waves, but foundsomething better with a nicer habit and it blooms even in the dog days of summer.
