    Pink Jacobinia, or Flamingo flower.

    Yep, Jacobinia. My grandmother grew them and now I do! They are beautiful!

    As the others have confirmed, Jacobinia (Justicia carnea). I have a couple, but they are not great performers in my garden.

    Thank you gardening friends. We are so so appreciative. The flower is just beautiful and now we know what it is.

    Pink Bee Balm? Monarda Fistulosa. It does also look like a Jacobinia.

    thanks. I've got one of these in my garden and have been wondering for years what it was. I never touch it and it grows beautifully. I live in Sydney Australia.
