I have the supertunias in a number of hanging containers; they have been spreading over the sides but are mostly foilage with only sparsely seperated flowers. Anyone else have this problem? I am not happy with them ..

Helen - this is a late reply - but just noticed it . I had the same problem but began using a fertilizer with a higher nitrogen content ( higher middle number) - such as Miracle Gro Ultra Bloom. I actually use a small amount at every watering. Jackie Zone 3

I've just noticed this post.
Sorry I didn't notice it before.
Like Jackie, I also use a weak fertilizer each time I water.
It's probably too late this year, but another good thing is to give them a fairly good haircut midway through the season; probably take about a 1/3rd off. This is hard to do, because you have to cut off so many flowers, and it does look a bit sorry for itself for about a week, but then it recovers and starts blooming profusely again, and much more thickly.
You could try this next year.
