Love this photo Masud. It is interesting to see things growing out in nature.

Nice photo. Red-flowered plants always have a special appeal!
The plant is "growing out in nature" but it is either planted or a garden escape, as it is not native to the area shown.
Here's a generalized range map from USDA Plants (note that this site uses political boundaries, whereas actual plant distributions are based on such things as environment, elevation, etc.):

Great link Lori, thank you. I have tried to grow it here but it is just to wet for our very long rain season (winter, through spring).

Confused . So it ended up here from egyptica? Blinking
Lynn, thank you. This is fun Hilarious! .
Lori sorry I posted it under the above mentioned name, rest is news. No, it is not planted and pretty isolated from any garden. I can assure you very far from the Florida Everglades or Texas but wonder of wonders any thing can happen in the plant world.
Thank you zuzu. Group hug . Yes, that is Salvia coccinea.
