A friend sent me this from a garden in London. I thought it might be a kind of Physalis but can't find one that has this colour flower, and the leaves look wrong.

Any ideas?

I'm not sure about the exact species or cultivar, but I believe that is a type of Physalis called Chinese Lantern.

I tend to agree with @Bamira , trailing Brazilian Bellflower Abutilon megapotamicum. The pic Sue posted shows the calyx, not the blooms.
