Botany picture #59: Ruellia longipedunculata

Ruellia longipedunculata (Acanthaceae), Bolivia, 2007. Ruellia is one of the largest genera of the Acanths. The American species that I am familiar with are mostly butterfly- or, as in this case, hummingbird-pollinated. The species shown here is a shrub and grows in eastern Bolivia.
