Wishbone Flower

Torenia crustacea

Description:

Very small plant with purple flowers. I have seen them growing in the grass in other places and the leaves are green, so I think these leaves are red because they are not living in optimal conditions. Recently reclassified from Torenia crustacea

Habitat:

Growing on a metal pedestrian ramp.

I don't think so, but the flowers do remind me of them.

Is it an orchid?
