Plant Features

Our Ragin Cajun Ruellia plant has the soft, mounding, willowy foliage the Wild Petunia is known for, but with fantastically red, very attractive and strikingly-colored blossoms. Botanically known as Ruellia elegans, Ragin Cajun grows taller and spreads wider than dwarfish varieties, like Katie. Ragin Cajun lives up to its name in that it enjoys heat and humidity, its breeding making it highly resistant to mildew as well.

Companion Planting: Chrysanthemum, Coreopsis, Phlox
