Notes:

Small purple blooming perennial seems to be taking over our flower beds. It spreads with runners along the ground. Any ideas?

    At a guess, Ruellia brittoniana
    Can’t really tell from the picture…

    Seems like a good plant to keep in an island bed surrounded by turf…

    At my house, the deer eat it.
