Ruellia ciliosa

Ruellia_ciliosa

Is this plant uhmazin’ or WHAT? A basal-rosette forming southeastern US coastal plain endemic! It doesn’t get any better than that!

…And one of two of our native (USA) species that I haven’t yet seen in the cellulose. HUGE thanks to Bruce Sorrie and the NC Natural Heritage Program for passing along this photo. A very distinctive plant that deserves your undivided attention.
