Can you help me identify this plant?

It grew more like a bush/shrub than a flower.




I really wish someone would answer this - its driving me mad, I do know what it is, but can I remember? Absolutely not....

Hi, i think the plant in the picture is Mirabilis Jalapa also called Marvel of Peru. I,ve grown it here in wales but it doesn,t survive most winters here

Thank you Jonathan - that's what I was thinking of. I have a friend who overwinters it indoors.

I walked by the garden I saw this plant in and was able to take obtain some seed pods. So, we will see what happens next season! Thanks again for the responses.
