Petunia x hybrida
According to Hortus Third (Macmillan, New York), this hybrid complex includes "all the highly developed garden petunias;" Petunia inflata is also listed as included in the parentage, but P. axillaris, P. violacea, and P. inflata are sometimes regarded as belonging to a single species. The USDA-GRIN database ( lists P. violacea and P. inflata as synonyms of P. integrifolia.
