Supertunia Royal Velvet | Proven Winners

Not to brag or anything, but purple has been the royal color since the Phoenicians. You know, back in the Jurassic Period. You won't find flowers anywhere that are a deeper, darker, or more velvety purple-blue than mine. Since I'm also a Supertunia (the Queen of Petunias) it's a given that I bloom from spring until a hard frost.

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.
