I'm not actually sure this is an actual plant but if it is, I'd love to know what it is! It's the picture from my daily puzzle.

It looks to me like a Red Porterweed.

I agree, Red Porterweed (Stachytarpheta mutabilis) I used to have the red variety in a container but don't know what happened to it; I haven't seen it blooming since 2013 but I still have the Blue Porterweed (Stachytarpheta cayennensis) (which is invasive here in Florida) in a few of the beds. It's a butterfly magnet too but I miss the red variety.
