 Ruellia affinis
Family: Acanthaceae
Red Ruellia, Flower of Caipora
Origin: Brazil
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunRegular waterRed/crimson/vinous flowers

This is a rare winter blooming tropical ruellia with showy 2 inch wide scarlet flowers. Unusual for a ruellia, this is a vining shrub. Pinching out shoot tips will cause it to throw out lateral stems to form a more bushy plant to 3 feet. But, it also can be trained up a support to grow more vinelike. It blooms on older ripened growth. So give it time, light shade, adequate moisture, and warm temperatures. It sports 5 inch short-petioled elliptic leaves. Native to Bahia, Brazil, where it is found in moist forests.

Ruellia brittoniana, Mexican petunia, Mexican Blue Bell

Click to see full-size image Ruellia brittoniana
Family: Acanthaceae
Mexican petunia, Mexican Blue Bell
Origin: Mexico
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsPink flowersWhite/off-white flowersBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Dwarf ruellia plants never get over 1 ft tall and the flowers are bunched right in with the leaves on very short stems. Although the blossoms each last only one day, there are usually plenty of buds forming so that there is a succession of new blooms over long periods. The leaves of this ruellia are dark green and very slender. The flower resembles a Petunia in form. As with the other ruellias, this flower does well under quite a variety of conditions, including full sun to shade, as well as dry to damp. They are rather cold-tender and can sometimes be killed by a very hard freeze, but most of the time they come back from the roots.

Ruellia multisetosa, Suessenguthia multisetosa, Columbian Petunia

Click to see full-size image Ruellia multisetosa, Suessenguthia multisetosa
Family: Acanthaceae
Columbian Petunia
Origin: Bolivia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowers

Suessenguthia is still a very rare plant. It is a large shrub with green herbaceous branches and bright pink flowers in spring through summer. Leaves are large, hairy and dark green. It can grow to about 10ft tall but needs some support, because the stems are very fragile. Freezes to the ground about 27-28F but comes back quick. The cuttings root very easily. The plant likes part sun or shade and moist soil. In full sun leaves get pale and the plant dehydrates easily. It is a nice unusual plant to should be more widely grown.
