It sounds like the name of my great aunt, but I'll call anything dear that blooms in 100 degree heat here in Texas. This is Ruellia humilis and it is a Texas native (according to websites). I have 4 Reullias and I really want to get more since they seem impervious to heat and dry conditions. Most come back from rootstock or self-seeding. Anyone have a favorite Ruellia I can try? Thanks.

I almost stepped on the bloom! It makes a great ground cover.
