This looks like ixora coccinea, a tropical plant that will not overwinter outdoors. Here is a nice webpage about care: http://www.plantsrescue.com/ixora-coccinea/

Wow, I am impressed! Thank you so much. I think you nailed it and now I won't lose it by leaving it outdoors over winter. Very much appreciated!!!
