Planting & 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.

Sunlight: Full Sun to Partial Shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium to wet

Temprature: 32 degrees F.

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • 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.


Special Feature:
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.
