This commonly seen US native, from Canada south to Florida, is surprisingly absent from American gardens. In appearance, it is a dwarf hardy version of its cousin, tibouchina. The 1' tall upright stems are topped with clusters of outfacing violet flowers from early August until frost. While Rhexia virginica is most at home in moist, acidic soils, we have found it to be extremely adaptable to much higher pH soils as well as typical non-bog garden sites. A well-grown Rhexia virginica makes a large patch to 3' wide in 3 years that integrates nicely with neighboring plants. If your garden needs a color boost in late summer and fall, rhexia is for you.
