Grown at Hutchinson Farm since 2010. Available May 2016, in 4" pots,  combination planters and hanging baskets.
Note: in case you're wondering, the "tree" is a fake -it is comprised of three layers of containers! Looks good, huh?

    These beauties are self-cleaning and floriferous.
    Winter Hardiness: Annual
    Light Requirements: Full sun - part sun


  • Growing Guide
    Supertunias are easy to grow, they're maintenance free and happy in most growing conditions. Fertilize weekly. Like all petunias, Supertunias grown in containers may require a hair cut. Trimming your petunias produces more blooms and new compact well branched growth. If your petunias are getting 'leggy' and don't seem to have as many blooms as you think they should, it is time for a trim. A short trim may be all they need (cutting off about 25%). A more drastic trim may be needed (max 50%), and in three weeks your petunias will return to their former glory.
