Wild Petunia is lovely at the edge of a garden path, tumbling over rocks, or growing in containers. The plants grow to about 10" tall and 18" wide. 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.
