Petunia's are flowering plants from South America. Petunia's are closely related to tabacco, cape gooseberries, tomatoes, deadly nightshades, potatoes & chilli peppers.

The name Petunia is taken from the word 'petun' from the Brazilian word meaning 'tabacco'.

The flower was discovered in the 17th century. Explorer James Tweedie sent samples to Glasgow Botanical Centre in 1831, which then made them popular with gardeners in Europe.

In Christianity, Petunia is a symbol of the 'Virgin Mary'. The flower is planted in gardens that are dedicated to the 'Mother of Christ'.

My Petunia is wearing a striped tee-shirt & shorts. These are detachable. Petunia is also wearing a detachable hat with a flower & bee button sewn on.

I have used Hayfield Bonus DK.
