Q:Is this the Mayan variety that does not spread?

Answer This Question

A:  Royal velvet  gets 12 inches high and 24 inches wide. I have only used it in pots.

by|Aug 22, 2022

    A:  It spreads and doesn’t need dead heading. Spray BT for bud worms  and feed once every two weeks with proven winners soluable plant food. Bubblegum supertunia vista is a vigorous grower as are all in the vista series. It is a magnificent plant and puts on a showstopper display. Loves the sun and is a perennial in zone 9,10.

      Q:does this petunia need to be dead-headed?
      by|Mar 29, 2020
      2 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  This variety is supposed to be "self-cleaning" and dead flowers fall off. I usually end up giving any petunias I grow a light trim back when they start to show less flowers and leggy stems.

      by|May 18, 2021

        A:  Hi Chris, Thank you for asking! Our Supertunias do not require any deadheading, as they are self-cleaning petunias. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact us at 734-654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Best Regards, Tabatha

                Q:outdoor plants that deer won’t eat

                Answer This Question

                A:  Hi Dj, Supertunia Royal Velvet is not deer resistant. Check out our coleus and Diamond Frost Euphorbia, they are deer resistant. But remember, deer will eat just about anything if they are hungry enough. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us on at helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com or (734) 654-7485. Best regards, Amanda

                  A:  I don’t have deer in my area. But they are great plants.

                            Can't believe that we had live petunias in Pittsburgh for Christmas!!! I was doubtful that they would survive in the cold but they arrived beautiful!!!

                            Nice petite petunia
                            This is a deep violet small petunia. They are very pretty. When we received the petunia it was out of the soil with its roots exposed. We were surprised we put it in the ground and watered it. It perked up and started to bloom.
