Very beautiful and popular plant at the greenhouse.
Cascades gorgeously!
The only bad thing I have to say is that they can get stringy if they aren't properly trimmed, and given their own space to grow.
Never had any problems growing them.

I feel the RaspberryBlast Petunia is a wonderful plant. I have used it for several years in boxes and it has out performed any similiar plant. It thrives in the sun, stands up to drought, and this year is doing very well in the wettest spring/summer we've had in years. What I really like is its amazingly strong stem. It does not break and produces many new shoots that flower profusely. Besides all this, it is beautiful!

These petunias are very sensitive to over watering. After a week of significant rain my hanging baskets of Supertunias (both of them) quickly died while my other petunias (Wave and Opera) did not. For this reason alone I cannot recommend the Supertunia series.
