Petunia (Petunia Violacea Wild Petunia) - A native to South America, Petunia Violacea is one of the parents to all hybrid Petunia plants. Grown from Petunia seeds, this wild Petunia is a tender perennial. Wild Petunia is heat tolerant, taller than most hybrid varieties reaching 12 or more inches tall, and spreading up to 30 inches in diameter. It has a profusion of small violet flowers which are 1 - 2 inches across.
Wild Petunia plants prefer to grow in full sun to very light shade. Less than 7 hours of sun each day will produce spindly plants with few blooms. The violet wild Petunia plant is considered a perennial in frost free USDA zones 9 - 11. In zones that get frost and cold temperatures, treat wild Petunia as an annual. Wild Petunia does not have a rigid, upright habit but rather a relaxed and sprawling habit. Petunia flower seeds are great to plant in hanging baskets and planters.
Directly sow wild Petunia flower seeds outdoors into prepared soil after danger of frost has passed and soil temperatures have warmed. Soil temperatures below 68F will limit germination response.
