Wild petunia starter plant (Ruellia humilis) DORMANT

$8.00

Wild petunia starter plant (Ruellia humilis). Isn’t really a petunia, but is native to much of the eastern US. A short, 1ft plant for sunny areas and can make a good ground cover. Pollinators like the bluish purple flowers and buckeye butterflies will use it as a host plant.

These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed . I recommend removing the pots or tearing the sides of the fabric when planting for easier root penetration.
