Wild petunia (Ruellia humilis), also known as fringeleaf wild petunia or hairy petunia, is a 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. Native to parts of the eastern and central US, 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.
