Supertunia Black Cherry Petunia Plants for Sale
Supertunia Black Cherry is a mounding petunia that produces deep red flowers with black accents from late spring into late fall. Its vigorous and free-flowering habit allows it to look good all season. Supertunia Black Cherry is perfect for the front of flower beds or added to containers or hanging baskets, where it can be used as a filler or a spiller. Both heat and drought tolerant, it attracts hummingbirds and butterflies.
Supertunias love heat and grow best in areas that get at least 4 to 6 hours of full sun per day. These easy-care flowers benefit from a controlled-release fertilizer at planting time and once per month thereafter when grown in containers. Most petunias grown in the ground need no more fertilizing other than an application of starter fertilizer at planting.
Supertunias will spread in a container, spilling over and softening the edges of pots and planters. If your petunia begins to hang down too far or begins to look tired, you can trim it back to rejuvenate. Avoid trimming more than one-third of the plant at any time.
