It looks similar to Texas Bluebells, but the color doesn't look right. It's too rosy. Maybe it's in the same family of plants.

I looked up the Texas Blue bell. I agree, the color is wrong as well as the leaves are not the same. Thanks for the input though.

Hi EKR,

They look like lisianthus to me. They are also known as Texas Bluebell and come in many different forms. Take a look at these sites to see how variable they are.

To anyone interested, I finally found out that this flower is called a Rose Mallow, a type of Hibiscus.
