Mexican Petunia (Ruellia brittoniana)
I'm new to the forum so let me introduce myself. My name is Amy, I live in Norman in an older house with lots of potential garden space. This year, I tried to go for a full-on garden but I planted before the last frost and what was left was flooded out. If at first you don't succeed...
Today, a friend gave me some plants that I've identified as Mexican Petunias. He said they are invasive but have been great for attracting hummers and bees. We all want bees, right? But here's the kicker - everything I've read about this pretty little plant says DON'T.
I want to, yes, but something tells me that in 50 years, when I'm dead and gone, these little buggers will cause more problems with OK's ecosystem than expected.
