Ruellia biolleyi

Ruellia_biolleyi

A highly distinctive Central American specialty. Loves wet forests, and high-quality ones at that. Most flowers of this species are pale purple or pink and white, but there are greenish-yellow morphs near the Atlantic coast in Costa Rica.

Has fleshy leaves. Sort of makes me want to eat it.
