From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Petunia × atkinsiana, also called Petunia × hybrida, is often grown in gardens.
A mule is a hybrid of a female horse and a male donkey.

A hybrid is the product of mating between individuals of different species or strains. The word is most common when talking about animals and plants.

Mules are hybrid animals. The female parent is a horse and the male parent is a donkey. A mule is generally sterile. Not all hybrids are sterile. Many garden plants and crop plants are hybrids. New species are sometimes formed from hybrids between two other species.
