The Proven Winners 2017 Annual of the Year is Supertunia Vista Bubblegum. Vista Bubblegum is easy to grow in containers or landscape and an excellent performer. No need to prune off spent flowers - just feed them a bit and place in a sunny spot and they'll bloom non-stop from spring to fall. This is one of my favorite annuals. These are photos of Vista Bubblegum in my yard. It will fill a large container quicker than lantana and most other annuals. If you love bright, vivid colors, this is a plant for you. Cut it back in July and it will fill in and look lush till fall. Looks great planted with burgundy and chartreuse color plants.
The Proven Winners Annual of the Year selection is based on the following criteria-
