Purple Showers Mexican Petunia

'Purple Showers' Mexican Petunia, which is a Ruellia and not a Petunia, is a very versatile and easy-to-grow hardy perennial in USDA Zones 8a-11. In zones north of 8a it can be grown as an annual in flower beds or in containers that can be overwintered indoors. The plant forms attractive clumps of erect, deep purplish stems that are clothed in dark-green, willow-like leaves tinged in purple. Vibrant purple petunia-flowers 2 inches in diameter are produced in abundance continually from late spring through fall - year round in zones where it remains evergreen. Butterflies and hummingbirds will flock to the flowers all season long! Get all the details below
