Petunia is genus of 20 species of flowering plants of South American origin. The popular flower of the same name derived its epithet from the French, which took the word petun, meaning "tobacco," from a Tupi–Guarani language. An annual, most of the varieties seen in gardens are hybrids. The Mayan and Incas believed that petunias have the power to chase away (with their odor) the underworld monsters and spirits. According to the folklore, Petunias will thrive where there is positive energy and will not grow in places where there is negativity
