The old botanical name is Lasiandra. Either way, their intense purple colour is an eye-drawing splash in suburban gardens right now. This is a taller one, possibly the 'Alstonville' variety.

I did play with the colours slightly - the light had made the purple in the photo paler than it really seems, so I brought it closer to the 'look at ME' purple you really see.
