love the anole lizard! haha the flower is beautiful, I do not think I have seen them before – do they normally bloom one flower per stalk or will the stalk develop more blooms?

This is the first time I’ve grown Mexican petunias, but I admired them in local gardens last year. The flowers on my plants this year only seem to last a day before dropping, and I think that usually only 1-2 flowers are blooming on a stalk at a time, but people usually grow them densely in a flower bed so the combination of dozens of stalks all blooming is quite lovely. I have a denser patch of these in another spot in my back yard, so I’m hoping to get that effect there. They don’t get as much sun, so haven’t quite reached their flowering stage yet.
