Dwarf Mexican Petunia
Ruellia brittoniana 'Baby Katie'
USDA Hardiness Zone Range:
9 to 11
Full Sun, Partial Shade, Shade
This easy-to-grow perennial is the dwarf version of the classic Mexican Petunia, named for its violet, petunia-like flowers that emerge from spring through fall. Unlike its sprawling parent plant, Baby Katie Mexican Petunia is a densely packed mound of dark-green foliage that flowers rampantly throughout the warmer seasons. Though the foliage appears lustrous and delicate, this perennial thrives in a variety of conditions and requires little to no care. It does well in both sun and shade, but will flower more in full or afternoon sun. Added to beds, pots, or in borders, this plant will be a lush, tropical-looking addition to your garden.
