Proven Winners on Supertunia Hoopla Vivid Orchid:

"Bi-colored Supertunias have been increasingly popular with North American gardeners"

Bi-colored Supertunias have been increasingly popular with North American gardeners and according to Proven Winners' John Gaydos, this is the reason why Proven Winners selected Supertunia® Hoopla™ Vivid Orchid™ .  

So, what's the difference between the new introduction and what is currently on the market?
"Supertunia Hoopla Vivid Orchid offers vibrant color and a head-turning picotee pattern with tremendous petal color stability all season long in the garden. We've trialed patterned petunias for years, and Hoopla Vivid Orchid is the very best picotee patterned petunia we've ever grown! While many petunias of this type tend to develop a bruised appearance as the flowers age, this new cultivar looks fresh until the petals drop cleanly."

Where does this new introduction fit?
"In the sales area, with so many solid-colored petunias available, this new introduction will easily stand out and jump from the retail bench with its bold flower color highlighted by a clear white petal edge. You can count on strong impulse appeal at retail." And in the garden? "This new Supertunia is bright, bold, and vigorous and has a strong growth habit coupled with reliable garden performance in upright containers, hanging baskets, and the landscape."

Is this new item a replacement, or a line extension/continuation of a series?
"Supertunia Hoopla Vivid Orchid is an addition to the Supertunia collection. It does not replace anything."

Are there any differences in cultural requirements?
"It can be can be grown just like any other Supertunia."

What new opportunities does this variety present?
According to Gaydos, it presents an opportunity for exciting new recipes due to its unique pattern and color. "And since bi-colored blooms are trending strongly with consumers, garden center retailers can expect higher sell-through. On the grower's end, Supertunia Hoopla Vivid Orchid presents an opportunity to take advantage of this exciting color pattern. The flower quality, performance, and well-branched habit make this variety rewarding to grow."
