Ruellia macrantha
“Brazilian Rose”

Ruellia macrantha “Brazilian Rose”

Ooh La-La & OH my MY! Regardez-Vous these splendidly massive magenta-rose trumpets blasting out the color! Super-showy & WINTER-BLOOMING, this evergreen perennial shrub showers bloomilicious color beginning late Fall through Spring, with an occasional mid-Summer volley of Flowers! Growing to 5' tall by 3' wide, it appreciates a good pruning once the bloom-fest is over. Quite versatile, it’s great in a large container - & we've even heard it makes a nice house plant. This Brazillian native can take light shade &prefers well-drained soil. Outdoors, it tolerates temps down to 25 degrees F.
