Petunia is genus of 35 species of flowering plants of South American origin (closely related to tobacco, cape gooseberries, tomatoes, deadly nightshades, potatoes and chili peppers) in the family Solanaceae. The popular flower of the same name derived its epithet from the French, which took the word petun, meaning "tobacco," from a Tupi–Guarani language. Most of the varieties seen in gardens are hybrids (Petunia × hybrida).
Petunias are a very common sight in Australian gardens and they can be seen in nearly all colours of the rainbow.

  1. I do so love petunias - I could use some right about now! We have had a few warmer days, so the silly paperwhite narcissus is blooming, but after this weekend, I fear they are going to be nipped. Hope youa re well, Nick!

  2. Nice capture! Thank you for sharing with you.

  3. I wish my petunia grow like these, not as lanky as they are now!

  4. Lovely color scheme. Beautiful! Have a good one!

  5. Beautiful Petunia! Brings summer so much closer:) Have a nice weekend!

  6. Beautiful photo and flowers!!

  7. Hello,
    love your Petunia, wonderful blossoms!
    Wish you a nice weekend,

  8. Such a cheerful flower! We saw Petunias a lot in the window planter boxes when living in Germany. Have a great weekend, Nick!

  9. The petunias are gorgeous. You make me look forward to spring when I can plant and see them in my garden again.

  10. The petunias are so beautifully in bloom, but I see that the red color is hard even for such an accomplished photographer as you to capture. I wonder if that is a Canon camera challenge. Reds and to a lesser extent, purples, seem to be hard for me. I just can't get the fine gradations of color, especially on a non-shiny petal. But what great blooms!
