Wild Petunia (Ruellia humilis)

  • I'm native to NA but not NY state. I should be planted in gardens, but not in wild spaces. 

    I'm called a wild petunia, but actually I only look like a petunia, I'm in a differnt plant family than the familiar petunia. 

    I like drier conditions and bloom during the heat of the summer

    I'm adaptable, so I can become agressive sometimes. 

    I attract many insects including the Common Buckeye Butterfly.

    I also attract hummingbirds.
