The wild petunia or Ruellia humilis should be hardy in your area but it will bloom beginning only in late summer. It is difficult to find but here is a possible source: Prairie Nursery Inc., Westfield, WI Ph: 800-476-9453 or In my experience this plant is not comparable in performance to the annual petunias we often grow in that it would not be suitable for the same uses.
