Ruellia Purple Showers is a showy vigorous perennial that grows 3 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide in the first season. This continuous summer bloomer provides a vibrant purple show for the landscape, great for attracting butterflies. Plant in full sun to part sun for optimal flowering. This drought and wet tolerant plant is a shrubby, woody-based rhizonmatous plant, meaning it spreads by rhizomes underground sending up new shoots all around, so take care to plant in areas where its spread can be contained. Makes a great container plant to provide color to your patio or balcony and grows tall enough to be used as a privacy screen. Hardiness zones 8-11, but grown as annuals in cooler climates. These plants are growing in 3.5-inch, deep pots.
