Eintob, there is no homesteading group - I do think discussions on that topic would be good in this group too.  I once tried to start a chicken raising group but there were only about 3 people on nexus at the time who were interested.  So there are some chicken discussions here.  I'll comment on one to bring it forward.

Dallas I don't know WHAT that flower is, but it's very pretty.  Really nice.

I knew I didn't find an exact match - but I was hoping that the ruellia I posted would get you on the right track. And yep - the humilis looks like it.

Here's another pic of the ruellia humilis. I do think this is it.

I think you found it. The flowers there a little lighter, but they have the same dark line down the middle, and they aren't growing in clusters. I think this is it. Thanks. : )

Some of the pictures of ruellia humilis look like they have fuzzy leaves:

Here is a closer pic.

Okay, I looked at the pics, and I'll have to say no on all of those, unless it is a variation of the species. The ruellia seem to flower in clusters, while this one does not. They also have a light stem down the middle, while my plant has solid green leaves.

 

It's also not the vinca minor, as that either resembles or is asian jasmine. Those leaves are too glossy and rigid, while my plant has soft, plush (slightly hairy) leaves. I don't think it's the 4 o'clock either, as those look too fancy.

 

Someone on another site suggested African violet, but all of those have scalloped or jadded-edged leaves, while my plant doesn't. So none of these match just perfectly, though all are somewhat similar.

I've started looking for it in Flora - this may take awhile.

It's neither vinca or 4 o'clock

Comment by o on May 10, 2012 at 5:25pm

That looks like vinca minor to me.

I've been enjoying all the conversation lately.  I just  got my garden planted a bit late a couple weeks ago.  I'm in So. AZ so it sounds like most of you are dealing with completely different issues than I am.  I also have a couple dairy goats and am looking forward to getting some laying hens come fall.  Is there a "homesteading" kind of group on AN?
