hi all. I'm trying to identify these 2 plants. I believe the second picture with the red flower is of similar habit to the purple flowered one. I'm hoping someone can help me out as I havent a clue and a friend keeps asking. Unfortunately I dont have any other pictures but the red one is the main one. I'm hoping someone can recognise it.
