Mexican Petunia is a shrubby woody plant used as annual with woody stems and long willow-like dark green foliage that is often tinged with purple.  Loose clusters of purple trumpet-shaped, petunia like flowers bloom from spring until frost.  Each flower only lasts a day but is quickly replaced.  Grows best with full sun and moist well drained humusy soils.  Drought tolerant once established.
