Wild Petunia

This lovely little flower bloom is a wild petunia. They range in color from light blue to violet and sometimes white. They are shaped like cultivated petunias but smaller and the blooms do not flare like regular petunias. It blooms June into September. A few of these plants are growing on the top of the culvert close to the driveway coming to the house. They are growing in an area that receives light shade, but they will do fine in full sun. This is the first year I recall seeing them here.

  1. I am totally amazed at all the plants you have shown us. Been up at "Rehab" this weekend and saw some great wildflowers. I am too tired tonight to get the pictures up. See you Monday. Beautiful plant on the post above to. Killing two birds with one stone.
