Bought off a rack at the healthfood store last night, no tag, but it looks like maybe a mini-petunia? The flowers are maybe the size of a nickel. Maybe a bit smaller than that.

Can anyone ID this for me? It's an annual and is just going to be plunked into a container but I hope to know what it is, first, if possible.
