My parents have orange (bracts) one and bracts look like prawns. Yours look like pineapples. I love this plant, keeps flowering all through the summer.

There's many genera in the Acanthaceae family, you're most likely thinking of Justicia brandegeana (shrimp plant).

That was a good guess, wasn't it? lol! :>)

Shrimp plants are very common sub-shrub here, also.
