Fun Facts: The Petunia plant...
The Petunia plant is a part of the Solanceae family, which includes tomatoes and tobacco. The indigenous word "petun," means "the tobacco that doesn't make a good smoke." This plant was often confused with the tobacco plant because of the similarly shaped bloom. Ancient cultures discovered the mix-up and gave it this name!
