    thanks, saltcedar-
    with the help of your suggestion, I looked the plant up at this link:
    http://www.wildflower.org/plants/result.php?id_plant=RUCA4
    it looks just what is growing in an little maintained area of my garden -
    a wild petunia or ruella caroliniensis, it keeps reseeding - I will start watering more often to have more plants-
