Pseuderanthemum carruthersii var reticulatum
This partuclar cultivated vairety was taken on the campus of the University of Hawaii Manoa. This variety has white flowers with an inner red pigmentation.
There are many other varieties of Pseuderanthemum carruthersii.
Here is an example of a dark variety.
This is a great plant to get pictures of ants crawling up and down the flowers. I have documented several black ant species that like to crawl into the corrola and nab nectar.
