Single Ruellia


Single Ruellia  (Ruellia makoyana)

Just one bloom at a time, but never out of bloom, a wonderful plant. I cut it half back last year, this year, I think I'll increase the pot size and let it get a big flush on its new growth. A house favorite.

Thanks. I do have plenty of flowering going on still even in deep winter. This guy is looking a little old and battered. I'm hoping a pot upgrade will get some new growth coming, freshen it up a bit. It is a lovely plant.
