Cool-season color is an unheralded hero in the landscape. That’s why we are naming Supertunia Mini Vista Indigo a Louisiana Super Plant. The Supertunia Mini Vistas bring some added excitement beyond that of the other Supertunia Vistas such as Bubblegum. The mini part of the name indicates smaller flowers, which really bring some wonderful texture to the landscape and have a unique look that sets them apart. While we really like all the Supertunia Mini Vista varieties, Indigo stands out among the crowd as it brings a unique color pattern, extreme flower density and excellent vigor to the landscape. Best grown in full sun, these make an excellent addition for the cool season, providing color, texture, and appeal from November through April. These plants also do great in containers, so adding them to planting boxes and pots is an easy way to add a splash of cool-season color.


  • Does best in full sun (more than six hours daily) but can also be planted in part sun (four to six hours daily).
  • Does best in raised beds, needs well drained soils.
  • Irrigate regularly during drier periods.
  • Soil pH should be maintained between 5.5 and 6.0 for best performance.

Care and Maintenance
