It is growing in zone 8, west coast of central Florida, and survived last winter in the ground with minimum mulch. It roots very easily and quickly from cuttings using rooting hormone.

Thanks for your help! Because of the shape of the flower I believe it is "Cat's Whiskers". It roots so easy I started three more pots today!

Orthosiphon aristatus, medicinal herb
Wikipedia : "It has been used for many centuries as a treatment for ailments of the kidney, bladder stone, urinary tract infection, liver and bladder problems, diabetes, rheumatism and gout. It is also used to reduce cholesterol and blood pressure. It is believed to have antiallergic, antihypertensive, anti-inflammatory and diuretic properties, and is used as a remedy for arteriosclerosis (capillary and circulatory disorders).

It has a mild diuretic action, so it is very useful for flushing the kidneys and urinary tract. It also relieves spasms of the smooth muscle in the walls of the internal organs, making it valuable for gallbladder problems. Researchers have found it to be mildly antiseptic as well."

Alpinia purpurata and Red ginger are the names of this flower, (very possibly).
Google that name, then look in (Images).

Your plant looks like a Red Ginger but you can tell for sure if you research and check the complete plant photos.

  • Information from one horticultural site.
  • Advertisement

  • Red ginger is a tropical plant that does best in areas where the temperatures do not drop below 60 degrees F. Ideally, the plant prefers temperatures consistently above 70 degrees F, in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zone 11 and above. It will die if temperatures drop below 40 degrees F, and will grow poorly in 50 degrees F. Grow in partial or filtered sunlight, but not full sunlight, in moist, rich soil that is enhanced monthly with fertilizer. It may develop chlorosis, a yellowing of the leaves, if grown in poorly draining soil.
  • Here are a couple of links to get your research started:
  • homeguides.sfgate.com/red-ginger-plant-38261.html
  • Dave's Garden has a lot of photos as well as basic information.
  • davesgarden.com/.../
  • If you do not live in Zone 11 (these grow wild in Ft. Lauderdale, FL) and plan to grow your plant in a container then maybe this is a good site to check.

The blue one is a peruvian lily. They're gorgeous, but smell like cat urine if any part of the plant is bruised.

I've never seen anything like it. If it were white with pink-blush centers, I would say the shape and the size of the flowers look like bindweed; but the color looks like trumpet vine. Need more info to make an identification with any degree of certainty.

Can you get a close-up of the leaves (with fingers or flowers for scale), and a more distant shot to show how the plant grows - twining, sprawling, bush, whatever?

Wow! These are cool! I have never seen one like this so I did a reverse image search and it looks to be a fritillaria imperialis tulip.

In reading about them, they are reverse tulips. They have their own wiki! en.wikipedia.org/.../Fritillaria_imperialis

Post back if you think this matches. They are lovely!! I learned something new today!!

Your plant is a primrose. Commonly called Sun Drops. They do spread like crazy but the roots are very shallow so they're pretty easy to thin out. I usually take a shovel and slide it right under the plants in the fall so there's not so many of them the next spring.
