Based in St Helens. I grow flowers, fruit & veg at home, on my allotment & in Thailand. Prefer the exotic & unusual & to share tips, ideas, seeds etc.
Please help me identify this plant. Seen in several locations in South & central Thailand this week 👍
#ruellia or #mexicanpetunia. This became popular in my island as a border plant some years ago, but I learnt its name through gt.
Brilliant. Thank you Susan. @novicegardenlover 👍
You're welcome Jeff.
Interesting. Do they survive winter there OK? @cyndi I'm pretty sure I've not seen them in the UK @cyndi
Thanks Cyndi. Unfortunately, none that I have seen here had seeds. @cyndi
If I see any back home then I might just acquire a cutting myself 😉 @cyndi
Great plant !! New to me
Saw lots of them in Thailand, which makes me think they'll struggle here, although Cyndi has had success with them 🤔 @sherrisgarden
What's ironic is I don't live too far from Mexico, and I've never seen one here in my area.
I wonder if it's because the climate is drier there? 🤔 It's anything but dry in Thailand. It even rains in the dry season there ! @sherrisgarden
That makes sense Jeff. And it's dry here too but probably not hot enough
