Ruellia (Wild Petunia)

Wild Petunias belong to a broad genus from temperate to tropical climates in the northern and southern hemisphere. North American species are winter hardy herbaceous perennials occurring in meadows, prairies and open spots in woods. They are floriferous and have lavender to bluish-pink flowers above fresh green, pubescent leaves on upright growing stalks. All are easily grown in any humus rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow seeds flat in any rich, well drained soil and keep pots outside in a protected spot. Seeds require a prolonged cooling period prior to germination in late spring. Carefully transplant young plants to the final spot in the garden as soon as they are strong enough.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
