Botanical name: Ruttya fruticosa      Family: Acanthaceae (ruellia family)

Beautiful vining shrub covered with very unusual red to dark orange flowers with brown markings resembling rabbit's head with ears. This plant is relatively rare. The flowers look like 1-2 inch hummingbirds with their wings swept back or, from the front, like rabbits ears. They are full of and drip nectar. Blooms in winter-spring. Ruttya never stops blooming all year, making it an ideal patio container plant. They also tolerate a wide range of soil pH.
