Additional Information About Katie Purple Dwarf Mexican Petunia - Ruellia

More About Katie Purple Dwarf Mexican Petunia...

Katie Purple is a dwarf, less-aggressive version of Ruellia. About 6 inches in height, it works nicely in an informal front-of-the-border grouping or as a groundcover in narrow spaces. Katie needs no deadheading, and will continue to produce it's bluish-purple, petunia-like flowers all season long, and is just as tough as its species parent, able to grow in hot, dry neglected spots or wet soil...even in the margin of the garden pond! In good soil, the plant will reseed true, but is not as invasive as others in the species.
