How to Grow and Care Ruellia Plant

RUELLIAS PLANT DESCRIPTION

Ornamental foliage, mottled foliage, Ruellia-like foliage, beautiful flowers, textiles, ornamental, modern — describing Ruellia is far from easy. It is one of the most atypical plants of the spurge family, coming to us from the humid tropics.

TYPES OF INDOOR RUELLIA PLANTS

Ruellias do not possess an enviable variety. As greenhouse or indoor plants, only a few species are grown, except for the legendary Ruellia Devo.
Ruellia makoyana, with slightly larger leaves and a dazzling purple color on its back.
Ruellia amoena, a large-leaved species with very brightly colored panicles of red tubular flowers.
Ruellia elegans (Red Ruellia), a unique species with straight branches that only droop with age, lance-shaped leaves, and wavy flowers.
The wide range of varieties makes it possible for everyone to find their own variegated beauty. You can recognize them simply by the color of their flowers — white, pink, purple — but it’s worth taking a closer look at their leaves. Bright or pale veins, emerald, dark blue or dark brown dark green, always look gorgeous, but still clearly different from each other.
