The Supertunia Vista Bubblegum Petunia is one of Louisiana's most durable petunia varieties and this year it's been designated an LSU AgCenter's superplant.

One of the most talked-about petunias in landscape gardening in recent years, the Supertunia Vista Bubblegum Petunia has been one of the best petunias in the landscape trials at LSU AgCenter's Hammond Research Station.

It can grow 16 to 24 inches tall. This petunia likes full sun and acidic soil. It works equally well in containers and in hangning baskets. In hanging baskets, the flowering branches and chutes can cascade over the edge, providing a stunning visual effect.

LSU AgCenter's Louisiana Superplant Program is an educational and marketing campaign that highlights tough but beautiful plants that perform well in our landscapes. The program highlights plants that have a proven track record in our climate, having undergone years of observation and testing.
