Wild Petunia is an Illinois native that is found in dry prairies. It resembles a garden petunia, but it is not related. It has a low, spreading growth habit. Leaves are silvery-green and hairy. Pale, blue-purple, tube-shaped flowers bloom in mid-late summer, and are attractive to bees. Wild petunia is drought and clay tolerant once established. It is a great native plant for a dry, sunny area. Use with Butteflyweed and Prairie Dropseed.
