There are a couple of species of Zauschneria with broad, ovate leaves like this. I may be way out here but it looks like one of those. I will have to dig about for the species names though.

First may I say hello! Please forgive my tardiness in my welcoming you to DG :)

Any info would be great please, is it shrubby? Does it have a scent, approx how tall and wide the plant, leaves and/or flowers are? Does it flower now in your area or is this an older picture?

Thanks for the welcome Baa, I am glad I found this place. First off I got it at a swap and it was a tiny little thing. I kept it in the greenhouse up until this spring. Right now it is approximately 18" tall, and the blooms are about an inch to an inch and a half, they are sort of trumpted. I just put it in the ground about a month ago and it seems much happier. I have never tried this in full sun. First the greenhouse and now it is planted int he shade.
The picture is new!

I ran a search on Zauschneria and that dosen't seem to be it. At least from the pictures my search brought up. This reminds me of something in the Bleeding Heart Family with the foliage and the way the blooms droop.

Nope, still not it, I have the Cuphea. I have made a journal page with a total of 3 photos, this may help. http://davesgarden.com/editgj/viewentry.php?rid=16876
