Ruellia 'Chi Chi' is a dynamite ruellia discovered in Texas...a seedling selection of Ruellia brittoniana from plant guru Scott Ogden. The narrow, dark green foliage clothes the 2' tall stem, topped with 1" pink petunia-like flowers, from early summer through fall. Ruellia 'Chi Chi' has performed well in both moist and dry conditions. Everyone who sees 'Chi Chi' wants to take her home...perhaps they've been watching too many soap operas on the Spanish Channel. Arriba! We do not recommend these for tropical or semi-tropical moist climates where they grow and multiply too well.
