Third month and they haven't stopped blooming. Great plants, no down time and no disease or insect problems. Looks white from afar, but up close, you can see the pink highlights. I will grow this next year!

Vista Silverberry was developed by Proven Winners and is part of the Supertunia Series. 'Supertunia' series is vegetatively propagated, meaning it is grown from cuttings, not seed. Vigorous growers and bloomers, they require frequent feeding to stay at their peak. But if you feed them, they will bloom and bloom. Supertunias are also weather tolerant.
