Southern Gardening: Supertunias bring color to gardens
There are many excellent petunias on the market—too many to detail in this column—so I am going to concentrate on what I consider one of the best petunias series: the Supertunias.
There are two groups in this series, the Supertunias and the Supertunia Vistas. Supertunias grow to about 12 inches tall and have a vigorous spreading habit. The Supertunia Vistas are bigger and can reach 24 inches tall. Both types are hummingbird and butterfly magnets.
With vibrantly beautiful colors, these groups have been good performers in Mississippi for the past few years. The Raspberry Blast, a deep hot pink with a vivid purple-red center, drew a great response from the gardening public at the 2009 Coast Garden and Patio Show.
