Petunia. Wild Violet

96% of 100

Annual. A native wildflower of South America with fascinating history. The low-growing, heat-tolerant Petunia violacea is floriferous and easy to grow, blooming all summer long. Native to the Ecuador highlands, this plant was traditionally used as a hallucinogenic, with reported sensations of flying or floating. Because the chemicals have not been widely studied, we recommend against ingesting or experimenting with it. We do, however, love it as a versatile bedding or container plant.
