Ruellia humilis (Wild Petunia) [15 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they require some patience. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds in fall to late winter, just barely covered with growing medium. Set them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)

Once you get wild petunia to flower in your garden, it’s likely to self-sow (possibly to the point of being considered aggressive in the Deep South). When the seedpods snap open, they can fling the seeds quite a distance, so you may find seedlings popping up in surprising places.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Description

Wild petunia (Ruellia humulis), also known as fringeleaf wild petunia or hairy petunia, is a native perennial that grows in 1- to 2-foot-tall clumps, with lavender-purple flowers from early or midsummer into early fall. The trumpet-shaped blooms, which open in the morning and usually close in the afternoon, are appealing to hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Wild petunia is naturally well suited to hot, dry sites but also grows well in average, full-sun to light-shade garden conditions. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.

Collected in October 2020. At least 15 seeds.

Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
