SS-AGR-371: The UF/IFAS Assessment of Nonnative Plants in Florida's Natural Areas: History, Purpose, and Use

Figure 3. The resident species, Ruellia simplex (A), and the two cultivars, Mayan Purple (R10-102; B) and Mayan White (R10-108; C), that were approved by the Invasive Plant Working Group after evaluation using the Infraspecific Taxon Protocol. UF/IFAS approved these two cultivars for recommendation because of their sterility and distinctiveness from the resident species.
