Katie Ruellia or Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie,' is an improved variety and able to bloom beautiful pink or purple flowers almost all year long. We like this dwarf variety because they feature low, spreading mounds of narrow, dark green foliage. The combination of the pink flowers, grass-like texture, and green foliage make it a perfect filler to add color and interest to barren, dry area in the yard. As a bonus, these are a non-invasive variety, so they are also suitable for mass planting. We also like to plant them in borders or on a sunny slope. Thanks to their compact form, these Pink Ruellias are an excellent choice for use as a groundcover in tighter, narrower spaces and they also look great when planted in pots or planters!
Katie Ruellia is a low water use plant, and are drought tolerant with little to moderate watering needs once established. This Ruellia variety thrives in full sun or partial shade exposures and is durable and easy to care for plants. These are a favorite for anyone that does not have a green thumb and still wants to have a thriving, colorful plant in their yard! They have a moderate growth rate, and with regular feeding of fertilizer, they will have the best development. Moon Valley Nurseries has the ideal fertilizers available at our nurseries.
