MN Native / Smooth Petunia $

Smooth Petunia
Ruellia strepens


Hardy Plant Bloody Dock

Native range includes southern MN, this very pest and disease-free plant prefers rich open woods and borders of streams and ponds.  Each 2” lilac-lavender flower resembling a petunia, lasts only a day but the bloom period of the plant is exceedingly long from May through September.  It will live in deep shade, but produces fewer blooms.  A nice care-free plant for the edge of the pond.  Will self-seed.

Size: 18 to 30 inches

Zone: 4 – 8

Light: Sun to shade
