The more suitable vs the less suitable.....

This is my  Ruellia brittoniana or Mexican petunia....

Though not a great favourite of mine... i do admit Mexican petunia in bloom is pretty..... it does cheer up the garden with its simple pretty face and strong colour...... the blooms only last a day....but there are always more to replace the spent  ones.... on top of that it is a very easy care-free plant.... !!

and this is my Vitex agnus-castus.....

As my poor wisteria...this poor darling is also perking up....producing new growth now that the temperatures are less hot... but i do not know if it will ever achieve the state of  the  luckier plants below.....siighhh... God gives me strenth to accept what i cannot change.... well at least i can smell the fragrant leaves....!!!

Vitex agnus is a medicinal plant. It is used to alleviate symptoms of various gynecological problems. All evidence is limited to standardised controlled extracts such as used in Germany, different extracts or herbal mixes may have significantly different properties and safety issues. Some of the modern uses include premenstrual syndrome, abnormal uterine bleeding disorders and mastodynia. (Source :
