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.

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

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.
