A "self-cleaning" petunia... what more can you ask for? I picked up a couple of these in the spring, just tiny little things. I plopped them in a bowl and set them on the top of a wire shelf unit on the porch. By mid-summer that shelf unit was all but hidden, those two little plants turned into a giant mass of beautiful blooms. And while I was running myself ragged trying to keep up with deadheading all my other petunias, these guys just took care of themselves.

I'm going to be sticking with Supertunias from now on. I'm hooked!

Awesome. It looked great well into October in Calgary, with some light frosts. I had 5 plants in a 12" hanging basket....the result was a 4 foot ball of pink. No deadheading required. I used fish fertilizer.
