Petunia integrifolia is the wild species from which the modern petunias have descended. The trailing plants have 2" wide, rosy-purple flowers.
Wild petunias are lovely at the edge of a garden path, tumbling over rocks, or spilling out of hanging baskets and containers. The vivid, trumpet-shaped flowers attract hummingbirds.
Petunia integrifolia is a tender perennial in zones 9-11. In cooler zones, it's grown as an annual. It blooms quickly from seed, and it may self sow in warm spots where it's happy. Also known as Petunia violacea.
