1 is a Senecio

The "Proven Winners" people sell one as S. cephalophorus which is similar.

#2, i think, is a Barleria. is it kind of sticky/stickery on the stems? they do bloom this time of year.

#3 is driving me crazy. i know i had that plant at one time and my mind is a total blank.

(Zone 7a)

Is it Fittonia? I don't know what the flowers look like.

kwangin, that is exactly the plant i was thinking of...so thank you for that! lol
that said, the only flowers i've ever seen on a Fittonia looked like miniature Justicia flowers.

i think you may have come across the right family though....more research.

3 does not resemble Fittonia in flower; it seems more like a Thunbergia in many ways.

i think we can say that it is in that Acanthe' family.

MADURAI, TAMIL NADU, India

3 May be


1.Asystasia gangetica ssp gangetica - Acanthaceae

2.Asystasia gangetica ssp gangetica

flower looks right but leaf is all wrong. even when i googled the variegated form, it's nothing like this leaf.

maybe a species of Chamaeranthemum? i'm having trouble finding pictures of any species other than the one on PF.
