Who knows what this is?

I’m hoping someone can tell me what the name of the plant in the photos is. I got given it by a neighbor who didn’t know what it is. 

 

Any ideas?

Re: Who knows what this is?

Great to see you make your first post @Mepro. Welcome aboard. 

 

I take it the flower is from your neighbour's garden? Do you know what the foliage looks like?

 

My first guess was a frangipani, but they don't have stamen, so that's not right. I'll leave it to our more knowledgeable green thumbs in the community such as @Adam_W@Branchy249 and @robchin.

 

Good luck with identifying the flower.

Sorry guys I can't tell either. Photo of the bush and foliage would help.

Re: Who knows what this is?

Thanks guys. I’ve added a photo of a leaf.

The plant is very small and had a few flowers on it last week. But they were only there for a week or so. It’s in a small pot (maybe 5 inches in diameter) and really needs to be either repotted or planted but I don’t know which.

It looks like a type of Jasmine to me?

Hi @robchin,

 

Here’s a photo of the plant from my neighbor. He didn’t know what it was either. Could it be Jasmine?

Wild guess, it looks a bit like an Azalea of some sort, possibly Azalea Autumn Lily. Not sure though, I haven't got very green thumbs.

 

Good luck, Roy

@Mepro

 

Reverse image search on Google thinks its a  Pseuderanthemum variabile

 

You can compare here: Pseuderanthemum variabile (R.Br.) Radlk.

Re: Who knows what this is?

Thanks Deanna!

 

I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. The question now is, do I want it in my garden? It sounds like it may turn into a pest. 

 

Thank you you so much for helping solve this mystery.
