So surprising: a good-looking garden shrub appears not to have an English (sorry: Australian!) name. In fact the scientific name of the genus means 'beautiful man', but sadly it refers to the stamen...
Anyway. This one is photographed in Darwin Botanical Gardens, but it could have been anywhere. The shrub is native in South America, but introduced to many tropical and sub-tropical places in the world. It can have many more flowers than just the one shown here.
