In Zones 2-9 it is grown as an annual, brightening spring to fall gardens across the country.

There are five other colors in the Supertunia Trailing petunia series for you to mix and match.
Supertunia® Trailing Blue Veined Petunia Care
Unlike some petunia cultivars, Supertunias are very heat and drought tolerant. In the hottest regions, in full sun, during dry periods, they keep on blooming. Plant in early spring after the danger of the last frost has passed, give them a slow release fertilizer in loose, well draining soil with an average pH of 5.5 to 5.8, water when dry for best performance, and that’s it. In long warm season regions you may want to supplement with a water soluble fertilizer for prolonged bloom.
Deadheading is not necessary with Supertunias as spent blooms will drop off on their own. Pinch back when first established to promote branching and subsequently more blossoms. Prune if it becomes too aggressive and exceeds its bounds and remove dry or yellowed foliage when present. Shearing once or twice in a season will help retain its shape and renew flowering.
Supertunia® Trailing Blue Veined Petunia Spacing
Space Supertunias 12 to 18 inches apart to give room to grow and plenty of air circulation. These are low growing mounding trailing plants that top out at about 8 inches tall and spread out to about 36 inches. They trail about 36 inches and make attractive hanging baskets or container plants. Plant in the foreground of your garden bed for an outstanding display. Supertunias pair beautifully with verbena, sutera, angelonia, calibrachoa, gypsophila, helichrysum, nemesia, and browallia as well as with upright grasses for a full season of color.
