Mexican Petunia characteristics
Ruellia simplex species from the Acanthaceae family is known as Mexican petunia, desert petunia and ruelia. It can be used as a permanent or even permanent ground cover, not seasonal, in parks and gardens. They require almost no maintenance.
Its scientific name is Ruellia brittoniana in some sources. It has nothing to do with petunia. Its homeland is Mexico, the Caribbean region and the north of the South American continent.
When does Mexican petunia bloom?
It is permanent as long as the temperature conditions are suitable. So it blooms constantly. There are purple, metallic blue, pink and white varieties of Ruellia. Its flowers are half-day old. They wilt in the afternoon but are not a problem as they are constantly budding.
Mexican Petunia care and watering
Mexican petunia Ruellia is such a harmonious, durable and problem-free plant that there is no need for words like grow it like this and take care of it. If you don't water anything, nothing will happen. Even if you water it abundantly, it doesn't matter for ruelia. It won't be harmed by anything. Let me just say that he likes sunny places.
How to reproduce ruellia?
Mexican petunias grow more often by removing shoots from the bottom and gradually expand their living space. You can root it whenever you want.
If you break their branches and plant them in the ground, they will take root over time. But I recommend doing it in cool and cold months. They spread seeds around. Over time, many seedlings appear spontaneously in the environment. But some hybrid varieties do not give seeds.
