Can anyone help me identify this plant

Can anyone help me identify this plant? I’ve had it for years from a tiny cutting (gifted from a friend who also does not know what plant it is) – it produced these beautiful flowers this time last year and has again produced them – i would love to find out the name so I can ensure I’m caring for it properly – thank you in advance

    Ask on the Plant Identification and Discussion page. Youll have an answer in minutes.

    Just look for the name I typed in capital letters. Location doesnt matter. They do ask you to list your location tho.

  8. Coni Tipton says:

    The flowers do look like Nicotiana.

    Thank you for the recommendation – I did indeed receive an answer in minutes and a quick google search would confirm the answer as spot on – for anyone who is keen to know it is a ruellia makoyana trailling velvet plant light pink form. Thank you again for the help ?
