Justicia americana

Justicia americana
Fully hardy acanthaceae are relatively rare in cultivation, and most Justicia are tender herbs and shrubs, so this one comes as a slight surprise. This is a rarely grown North American marginal producing heads of pretty violet/white flowers over fresh green foliage for a long while in summer.
Justicia americana and Dichromena colorata
Easy in shallow water or wet soil. Not at all weedy
