Ruellia brittoniana --Mexican petunia-3to 4 ft. tall

22 years ago

Annie's post of ... What is holding up in the heat an humidity for you -- reminded me -----someone-- Not sure who- in the spring -left on my porch a Ruellia brittoniana --Mexican petunia-note said ---new to me -I am new to the South --I have way out by a back fence ... Flowering like crazy, ...I just saw it on the Texas forum under things I would never plant again in several post.

My yard has about an acre, been neglected for years hope to get a good start when it cools off. And next spring --a plan -- soil amendments, etc.,

Question is does any one have anything good to say about Mexican Petunia or should I take it out immediately, well when it cools off.- -is it to invasive ----or can you keep it under control.
