Smooth Petunia (Ruellia strepens)
One of my first wild flower surprises when we moved into our present home was the wild Smooth Petunias that showed up next to the house in the "shade garden".
They come back every year in May.
This year I got an even bigger surprise when one showed up in the above planter.
I have no idea how it got there, but I will enjoy it (and mark the area so I never disturb it) while the short lived blooms are there.
Here is more information on Smooth Petunias.
