Thank You Jade!
I think you are right it looks like Cuphea llavea.
I have NO idea how it got in my planter?
I guess I need to move it?
Do you think it would do ok in a pot? Or do I need to put it in the ground?
It looks to be a type of cuphea to me. Maybe Cuphea llavea?

I remember growing that one at the one wholesale place where I worked, I think that they called it batface cuphea. It has purple 'ears', right?

Thank You Friends! Yes its such a pretty flower!
I can NOT figure out how I ended up with it though???
So any advice? Will it spread? Will it come back?
Any suggestions are appreciated!
Does it seed?

Should it be in a pot of its own?
