Here is my entry for Cee’s Flower of the Day (FOTD) challenge.
The Mexican Petunia is drought tolerant & multiplies pretty quickly. It blooms during the day and by late afternoon, early evening, all the flowers have fallen off until the next day. Throughout the year, they will continue to bloom, but during the summer they are at their peak. They are visited by bees and butterflies…and the occasional hummingbird. Hummingbirds prefer the other flowers specific to them in the other gardens. Mexican Petunias are a beautiful contrast to the other foliage that shapes our front yard.
We are all just babes in the woods.
