Does anyone know the name of this plant? I found this when I was walking through a local park, I took a small stem and rooted in the ground, it's a really fast grower that bloomed this year from spring to summer. She really is a beautiful flower with 8" to 10" reddish spires.

Hi Georgiagirl~

It is a picture of what the cutting has grown into. I'm gonna go and research the name "Justicia brandegeana" to see if it fits my plant.
I agree that pinching plants is the best, gives one a sense of amazement to see how they grow ( and pride).

Off to visit your blog, enjoy today.

Hi Georgiagirl~
I checked out the Shrimp plant and it's not a match. These blooms are like 10x the size of those.
the mystery continues :)
