Help me identify this plant please. Flower is about 15cm tall and has a white petal thing coming out the centres. It has large soft oval leaves ending in a point. It is growing in SE Queensland. See other photo of shrub. #plantid

Missed the program Katie, but may get it on catchup. It looks similar to mine - very pretty. Is it? 🤔 @brightcolours

I don't have any but had seen others posting theirs recently and wondered if that's what yours was?

I've had a chance to catch up on last nights program and they are the same. Found this on the web "Also known as red Justicia, though the taxonomists have removed it from genus Justicia now. " @brightcolours
