Ruellia hygrophila

Just a couple of metres from the rooms of SoutWild Pantanal I found a group of plants with these beautiful flowers. In Pantanal you simply do not need to introduce popular plants in your garden – just invite some of the local flora, and you will have a self sustaining garden with flowers of different size and color. This plant is no higher than 2 cm outside blooming season, but when the inflorescence develops it can reach 10-15 cm. Thus it’s perfect in your lawn.

Native range is Bolivia, Brazil to Argentina.
