It seems to be S.hamiltoniana. Can you confirm ?
Was it cultivated or wild ?
To me also appears close to images at Strobilanthes hamiltoniana, but I am not sure.
This is Strobilanthes hamiltoniana without doubt.
I think this is Strobilanthes hamiltoniana BUT it is cultivated or, at least naturalized from a cultivated plant.
i don’t know if it’s cultivated. I think rather than it’s escaped from a nearby garden…
Next to there is a botanical garden (spices graden).
105 ID wild plant.: 18 images.

Yes, it is. Thank you very much for ID my plant. It is here only at this house, 6 plants. “Easy propagation through stem-cuts”, they said. Wikipedia says another name (find screen shot).
That seems to be wrong ! That is Dicliptera group.
Thank you very much for sharing information,
Yes, appears close to the images at Strobilanthes hamiltoniana
