Sharing few photographs of a Ruellia sp.  
Bot. name: Ruellia inundata
Family: Acanthaceae
Date/Time: 15-01-2012 / 09:30AM

Habitat: was seen growing wild near the street, could be garden escape..
Plan Habit: Herb, approx 80 to 90 cm in height.


All your pictures are named as Ruellia tuberosa, while you are stating them as Ruellia inundata, pl. clarify.


It is not Ruellia tuberosa, … is correct


Yes …, Good observation…. By mistake i named these pics as R. tuberosa, later they were identified as R. inundata. Thanks …


Some feedback from another thread:
“The following link will give you KEY to R. inundata
This click gives field guide.

This page gives some info, the ventricose part of the flower looks more elongated (you may check Dave’s also), one simple way to ascertain the id from some other in the clade is to check for obovoid fruit, which I fail to see here.


Ruellia inundata Kunth !

ID validation- Ruellia tuberosa- 210112-PKA1: Sharing few photographs of a Ruellia sp.
I think this is Ruellia tuberosa? Kindly validate the ID.
Family: Acanthaceae

As far as I know Ruellia tuberosa has glabrous leaves and introse stamen.

In your plant the leaves are hirsute and also has an extrose stamens. Which makes me feel this is not Ruellia tuberosa.


For Ruellia tuberosa, i am not agree.


May be Ruellia inundata Kunth : Specimen
But not reported from India.


Pl see for Supushpa scrobiculata.


What about Dipteracanthus patulus. Katmora काटमोरा
It looks similar to my post earlier which was thought to be R.tuberosa by me
. (Ruellia tuberosa ?)


Ruellia inundata as per another thread.
