    Anyone else growing Justicia carnea or other species in shade? I'm amazed as to how well they bloom without any direct sunlight. A prolific shade bloomer isn't easily found.

    Good Idea - Some of us may be growing it and not even know we are. Could have been purchased under some common name.

    I have had good luck with J. carnea in light shade. But both J. Aurea(yellow) and J.Brandegeane need high light to full sun to flower well in S Fla
