This is the common name that Habranthes x floryi is sold under.

This is a very popular hybrid between Habranthes robustus and Habranthes brachyandrus with pink trumpet flowers that rapidly multiply across the garden. It shows the best characteristics of both parents and makes an excellent border plant as it blooms all summer.
