Pretty Much Picasso Supertunia!

I'm just putting together a presentation on Cutting Edge Containers for the upcoming Spring Ideal Home Show in Halifax and I came across this photo that I took last summer. It's the new Supertunia 'Pretty Much Picasso' released by Proven Winners for 2010 and I thought that I would share it with you!

Last spring, they sent me a few 'preview' plants to test in my gardens. From the moment the first bloom opened, this became my new favourite container plant! I love the unique colour combination of purple-violet with lime green and I loved that it bloomed all summer long with no need to deadhead.

Since it's a trailing plant, it is ideal for containers, window boxes and edging garden beds and pathways. It has already won several awards and will be widely available this spring at garden centres and greenhouses!

Happy Gardening!

  2. Sorry, they're not available from seed, only from transplants.. they're quite easy to find in spring though, maybe a bit more difficult at this time of the year.
