When we were in Mallorca in September I took a photo of this plant. It has really intense colouring and I'd love to have it in my garden but so far have been unable to identify it.
It is a Ruellia sp.
Maybe Ruellia simplex?
The Bird Lady, it is stunning, do you think it would grow in this climate? If it doesn,t then flax would give you a similar flower.
A Mexican Bluebell!!! Wow. I'll do more research and see if I can grow it in the UK.
Bird lady, I posted pic of flax on 'Summer is here' thread
Some are calling it Mexican Petunia - I think it's lovely whatever it's called.
