Common Name : Petunia.
Bengali Name : পিটুনিয়া ফুল
Botanical Name : Petunia × hybrida

এই ফুল আমাদের দেশের বনে জঙ্গলে হয়না, শুধু মাত্র বাগানে শখ করে অথবা সৌন্দর্য বর্ধনের জন্যই লাগানো হয়.

Petunia is a very popular ornamental plant and can be used as bedding at a garden. There are lot of hybrids available around the world and found almost in every color. This plant is originally belongs to South America. Not sure about the scientific name, possibly it is Petunia × hybrida. It is unsure when this flower first came to Bangladesh(বাংলাদেশ). But now a days both the laymen and amateurs are using this flower at their gardens.

Petunia flower has a shape of trumpet. Stems and bracts are hairy and sometimes sticky. This is a prolific blooming plant and used to give flower more or less at every seasons, but most profound during the summer. This plant can sustain in heat, but not too much heat. Plant is susceptible to the water. Stagnant water around the plant can cause death. Also direct watering at the leafs and stem can cause rotting.

There are two types of Petunias around the world, Grandifloras and Multifloras. First one is larger in size and showy, whereas second one is the smaller and sustains in rain. Petunia can not stand frost, so if you are preparing to plant this at your garden, then do if after the winter is over.

More detail of this flower is available at WikiPedia. I have captured the photos of this flower from BARDS of Comilla(কুমিল্লা).
