This fast growing, long bloomer adds the perfect pop of color to any hanging basket, patio container or sunny gardens; large pink and white flowers stand out again green foliage; mounded habit with trailing tendencies; heat tolerant and low maintenance
Supertunia Mini Vista® Pink Star Petunia is covered in stunning white trumpet-shaped flowers with pink overtones and hot pink veins at the ends of the stems from mid spring to mid fall. Its pointy leaves remain green in color throughout the season.
Supertunia Mini Vista® Pink Star Petunia is a dense herbaceous annual with a trailing habit of growth, eventually spilling over the edges of hanging baskets and containers. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep. Trim off the flower heads after they fade and die to encourage more blooms late into the season. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Supertunia Mini Vista® Pink Star Petunia is recommended for the following landscape applications;
- Mass Planting
- Border Edging

Planting & Growing
Supertunia Mini Vista® Pink Star Petunia will grow to be about 8 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 20 inches apart. Its foliage tends to remain low and dense right to the ground. This fast-growing annual will normally live for one full growing season, needing replacement the following year.
This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. It can be propagated by cuttings; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
Supertunia Mini Vista® Pink Star Petunia is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. Because of its trailing habit of growth, it is ideally suited for use as a 'spiller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the edges where it can spill gracefully over the pot. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
