The gardener said it is a shrub. It had a violet-pink flower when I bought a couple of months ago. He could not name it. Any help here?

No, MVR. I forgot to tell you that the flower is trumpet-shaped and it does not flower in clusters like that.

I have managed to get a pic last week. The trumpet shaped flower is about 2 inches long. Notice a tendril like thing on the left of the flower. Hope this will help someone to get it identified.

It looks like some thing in the bignoniaceae family. The flowers look a lot like Saritaea magnifica but that is a vine also... http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=Saritaea+magnifica&btnG=Google+Search

I think Poppysue is right. If it has tendrils mustn't it be a vine? If it has nothing to climb on,it will "climb" on itself. Your first picture looked to me like a Dahlia.

The camera I borrow does not have a high resolution and hence the sharpness is lacking in the many of my pictures in comparison to what I see here on the forums.

Well, I have seen this plant grown as a shrub, probably they maintain it like that. The link poppysue has given suggests that it is THE plant and I confirmed it in the web. Thanks. Yes, the tendrils are there and so it must be and it is a vine. I have to prune them up to look like a shrub.
