Forgot the name !
yes a verbana sp. pink porterweed. hairy leaves, pink flowers on spikes.
Not sure if this is wild one.
Stachytarpheta mutabilis (Jacq.) Vahl ??

Chascanum hyderabadense (Walp.) Moldenke (= Bouchea hyderabadensis Walp),
tall undershrub from Yercaud hill station Tamilnadu
Thanks … for showing… This taxon can be confused with Stachytarpheta..
To me looks different from references and other images at Chascanum hyderabadense (Walp.) Moldenke
Bouchea hyderabadense Walp. is the synonym of Chascanum hyderabadense
Stachytarpheta mutabilis is also applicable
It looks like Stachytarpheta mutabilis; the flora picture is not clear
