Need help identifying a tropical plant with purple flowers

Tucson, AZ

I am currently posted in Bangkok and am curious to know the name of a plant I recently bought. It's seems to be doing well in full sun.

Thanks

RIck

agreed, a ruellia - the flowers usually last only one day, closing up by afternoon?

Delhi, India

Ruellia brittoniana Leonard now known as R. simplex C. Wight
