No its not Nerium. I know the plant, but dont know the name. 

i have been looking at the flowers and their leaves, and raking my brain. i have seen this or its cousin some where. may be before digital pics in my collection. i want to say related to gustavia, sp. but thats just a fanciful wishful idea. really cant place it. so our dependence is on you, …

was there any label at all? hiding?

Looks like a hybrid of Leptospermum. Not native to HK. Myrtaceaee.

But not sure.

that’s where i had seen it, many many moons ago. new zealand flora exhibits at brooklyn bot g or  nybg ! now we can find them and do the reading. its really from aus or nz
