    You’re welcome! Thanks for the feedback on the ID. Plants, they fool me often. Best wishes!

    Oh thank you – it IS Justicia adhatoda. How silly of me not to recognise it as related to the more familiar J. carnea. It’s a lovely shrub and I’ve been trying to identify it for ages. Thanks again.

    This might be Malabar nut (Justicia adhatoda syn. Adhatoda vasica).
