Ruttya: Greenhouse Plants

W – warm, minimum of 13°C (55°F)

Family: Acanthaceae

South Africa

Ruttya fruticosa is best trained as a climber although it is not self-clinging and will require tying in. The curious orange flowers, which look as though they have been splashed with a blob of creosote, appear in autumn and need warm conditions to make a good display. After flowering, shoots should be cut back to within short spurs of the main stems to keep the plant compact. Cuttings are easily rooted in spring. A yellow flowered form is also available.
