Description

Instead of planing annual petunias, try the charming native wild petunia. Wild petunia is drought tolerant and blooms from summer to fall. It is particularly striking when planted in masses, and it weaves companionably through other plants.

“Wild petunia attracts a wide variety of insect pollinators, but the lavender blooms are especially attractive to long-tongued bees and butterflies. It is also a host plant for the larvae of the buckeye butterfly.” – Prairie Moon Nursery
