I can't see enough of it to tell. Can you send a shot of the whole plant? Thanks! K

I just kept looking and found the answer at the site below: http://www.fireflyforest.com/flowers/category/view-plants/ This is an Arizona foldwing (Dicliptera resupinata). It is a perennial plant in the acanthus family (Acanthaceae) native to higher areas of southeastern Arizona into Mexico.
