    My husband and I just visited your alpine garden last Friday and the sweet petunia wasn’t blooming. However, we loved the alpine garden with all its wonderful and varied plant life.

    What an interesting petunia. It reminded me of an old glaze-cracked tea pot I have. I don’t use it, because the thing might break, but it is pretty with the cracks in the pottery work.
    How wonderful for nature to follow art, for a change. Just kidding.

    I never thought I’d meet a petunia I like, but that plant is beautiful. Thanks for sharing!

    Elizabeth, I’m quite sure it would have problems overwintering down south (eg. Florida). Hot days might not be too taxing (though humidity probably would) but warm winters almost certainly. Strong seasonal temperature variation in its natural habitat probably contribute to flowering.
