SOLVED: Ruellia with purple foliage?

Spicewood, TX(Zone 8b)

Cam across this tonight and I HAVE to have it, but I'm not sure if it's real (top right pic on this page: ). Anyone know if this is a real plant? The site says it's Ruellia malacosperma, but all of those are green-leaved, right?

Deep South Coastal, TX(Zone 10a)

Wing, my pink one has dark foliage. I'll see if I can root a cutting.

Oh, you doll!! Is it dark green, Cala? I have both the pink and purple with dark green foliage. I wouldn't want you to go through any trouble if I already have some. :)
