I tcould be a type of Lantana Panther...the leaves look to be the same texture but pointed....similar flowers and colour too.

HI Janey, yes it looks similar to a lantana plant but I don't think it is. I hope you had a wonderul Christmas:-) Thanks for responding though, I appreciate it. Take care.

I can see why Janey suggested Lantana type, because it has that 'look' from the photo.
Certainly very pretty flowers. :o)

Yes TT, I agree. I still am trying to find the name, I'm sure Marguerite or Delonix may know.

Janey, I hate to say this...however, this is not a Lantana. It's in the Gesneriaceae family which includes such genera as: Streptocarpus, Gloxinia, Kohleria and Saintpaulia (African Violet).

I'm pretty sure this plant is Chrysothemis pulchella. There's many named varieties of this plant.
