Sorry but I dont have any more pictures of this plant, but I can give some other details: the stem and leaves are slightly furry (leaves are only furry on the petiole and axil, and very small hairs, hardly visable, on the veins). The plant is about 20-30cm tall, and the flower about 5-7cm in diameter. Hope this helps!
Rebecka can you upload pictures of this plants leafs they will solve mystery of ID.
Looks like a petunia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petunia
Not sure about ruellia as the flowers do not have individual petals, but maybe a different subspecies?
Wow! Beautiful color!
Can be a Ruelia.. Leafs will tell more suitable story.
