Description for Ruellia brittoniana

Winter hardy to USDA Zone 8 (marginally hardy in Zone 7 with protection and mulch) where it is best grown in medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Best flowering is in full sun.

Mexican petunia Purple Flowers freely 3.00 to 4.00 feet Easy to grow

Planting and care

An ideal location for growing ruellia is a site with full sun exposure. Although ruellia flowers are highly adaptable and may do well in shade, expect fewer blooms due to the lack of sunlight. Growing ruellia plants appreciate regular water but again the tolerant plant can withstand drought conditions in prepared soil.

Full Sun to Partial Shade Well drained soil Medium to wet 20 to 40 degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Ruellia brittoniana

  • Noteworthy Characteristics: Petunia-like flowers from spring to frost. Native to Mexico and the southwestern U.S. Care: Ruellia needs a warm climate. Site in partial shade and fertile, consistently moist, but well-drained soil.

Typical uses of Ruellia brittoniana

Special features: Excellent annual flowering plant for areas where it is not winter hardy. For USDA Zones 8-10, it may be effectively grown in bog gardens, as a pond marginal, and in beds and borders, but can be significantly invasive in areas such as the State of Florida where it is has been declared to be a Category 1 invasive species. Excellent free-blooming plant in large containers. May be grown indoors as a houseplant.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.

Medicinal use: Ruellia tuberosa has been extensively used as diuret- ic, anti-diabetic, antipyretic, analgesic, antioxidant (4), anti-hypertensive, gastroprotective (5) and to treat gonorrhea
