Supertunia Mini Vista® Violet Star Petunia Care
Supertunia Mini Vista® Violet Star is easy and low maintenance. It has a wide range of adaptability from part to full sun areas. Soil should be well draining and it has average watering needs. Once established, this plant can bounce back from periods of drought with ease. Trim ends at any time and only cut up to ⅓ of its volume at one time. Trimming helps to increase branching, vigor, and stimulate blooms. Petunias are heavy feeders and do well with slow release fertilizer at the initial planting with a second subsequent slow release fertilizer application mid season. In containers apply an initial slow release fertilizer and subsequent regular water soluble fertilizer regime to keep blooms prolific.
This annual cannot survive frost or freezing temperatures. Typically this plant is hardy in zones 10 and 11. Overwintering indoors or outdoors in more temperate zones is not recommended.
Supertunia Mini Vista® Violet Star Petunia Spacing
Space this plant at least 12 to 18 inches apart when planting in the landscape and leave as little as 6 inches apart from each plant in container and combination plantings. Use a 12 inch hanging basket or 14 inch container minimum. Violet Star can be competitive in combination plantings, so choose plants that match its vigor.
