Boasting a profusion of attractive bell-shaped, lavender blooms, Ruellia humilis is a host plant for caterpillars of the Common Buckeye Butterfly. Short internodes give the plant a compact, bushy appearance.  This little beauty will even bloom in the heat of summer if given a bit of water. It is a wonderful addition to native plantings and rock gardens.
