I think it could be angelonia serena.. Bunnings sells it and I suspect that is where the people who potted them up got their plants from.

Bingo! Yes, an #angelonia 👍🏼 "The flowers of Angelonia are highly specialized in regarding to the pollination, because they have hairs in the inner corolla, which produces oils collected by the oil bee pollinators, specially of the genus Centris.[2]" http://bie.ala.org.au/species/http://id.biodiversity.org.au/node/apni/2893553
