Browallia speciosa

Phonetic Spelling
bro-WAL-lee-ah speh-see-OH-sah
Description

This plant prefers rich, well-drained soil and likes full sun to partial shade. Keep evenly moist. Over-watering or over-fertilizing will promote foliage at the expense of flowers. It needs a space of at least 6-8 inches since it generally spreads 1 foot but can sometimes spread 3 feet.
