Is Ruellia deer resistant? I have white Ruellia, 18 -20 inches tall.
Please visit our Recommended Species page. Under Special Collections you will find an entry titled "Deer Resistant". If you click on that link you will get a list of deer resistant plants and on that list you will find the following Ruellia species listed. I'm not sure if you have R. metziae or R. nudiflora (since it can also have white flowers), but these 4 (and I suspect any other Ruellia species not on our list) are deer resistant.
