Ruellia colorata [trivialis?] Ruellia colorata [trivialis?]
Stock Number: 50060
Availability: In Stock
Family: Acanthaceae
Cultural Code: TGH CGH what's this?

"Lobster Claw" from the Amazon basin producing spikes of brilliant scarlet bracts coloring just in time for Christmas and staying bright carmine several months--pretty tubular blossoms emerge, then disappear from these long lasting showy bracts. This showy inflorescence tops each stem of this stout branched shrub of easy greenhouse culture where it can eventually reach several feet. We are occasionally sold very low due to its current fad status in Asia--please inquire before ordering.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
