Identification please

This fantastic shrubby plant is 2 foot high and has flowered all summer. Brilliant scarlet bright green leaves. It was bought at Hampton court flower show but I could not read the label. The gent on the stand was temporary and he said it was new. Unfortunately, I lost the catalogue when looking after the purchases. This is today's photo, so it is very hardy. Any one able to help please? I am trying to put the photo on.

  • Thanks Dovefromabove, clicked on advanced and rebooted, these are the photos of the plant. For me it's certainly a winner and any name or quesses would be appreciated. But it seems to be liking the conditions I have given it. Taken a cutting just in case.

    Any smell to leaves or flower?

    how many petals?

    What's the lowest temperature it's survived so far?

    It doesn't look very hardy

  • Thanks for the interest. No smell on leaves or flowers. The flower looks like a flared trumpet with shape of petals round the edge. It's flowered all summer as though it's an annual and I have just cut it down to keep it bushy and without wind rock.

     It had so many flowers dozens - and lovely colour. 

  • On the coast in devon it's mild, we had a few nights frosty one down to minus 2. But it's a warm climate.
