Wild petunia is not closely related to the common petunia, but both the foliage and flowers are similar. Bears showy lavender flowers over a long period in summer. Easily grown, it has impressed us with its adaptability, ruggedness, and beauty. This is a fine native wildflower which deserves to be better known.
