  1. Beautiful Ruellia or Desert Petunia. I have never seen the blue flowers. I only have the purple and the pink ones. Thank you for hosting.

  2. I am so behind in blogging. The flowers are gorgeous. Have a great Sunday.

  3. It's gorgeous! Definitely looks like a petunia too.

  4. Ruelia is gorgeous, but she is very sensitive. At least here, in our country, the strong wind causes great damage to flowers.
    Have a fine week!

  5. Lovely colors have your ruellias! You are so gifted to take care of your garden!
    I dare a question. On my post I have that white-red flower. Is it any chance to know it's name?
