This is the time of year that the native ruellia starts to bloom. We have it in our yard, in flowerbeds, in the barn lot, and in the pasture. It's known as "Mexican Petunia" but is really ruellia britonnia. It spreads like crazy and we just let it go where it wants. No need to fight a losing battle!

@marlingardener This is really ridiculous for me, because here ruellia is sold in pots as a house plant.:D

I see ruellia on the windowsills in offices, hospitals, kindergartens ... And seeds in the "seeds of house plants" department, with blue and pink flowers. Our ladies gardeners carefully take care of this, fertilize, trim and stimulate flowering. At a time when ruellia grows literally like a weed for you! :D:D:D
