Description:

Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie' is very similar in appearances to Ruellia brittoniana.  The main difference is the maximum height.  Katie will reach a height of only 12 inches which makes this a good variety for layering in front of taller plants in the water garden. Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie' flowers continuously throughout the summer months adding a bright spot to any pond or water feature.  A great marginal plant it can also be used outside of the water garden so don't be afraid to experiment with different ideas.
