I met this shrub on two occassions, the first one in a garden, the second in the Botanical garden of Rio de Janeiro, again not labelled!

I think you got it spot on Tiffany! Thumbs up
The flowers are certainly a match, at first I was doubting about the leaf shape, but they can vary from "elliptical to narrow ovate"..

I have been very fortunate, thanks to friends, to visit that paradise, though I wish there weren't those nasty ever-present mosquitoes and horseflies, I am like a magnet to them!! Rolling my eyes. Hilarious!
