Hi there, I see you have just joined . . . welcome. It looks like some mint family plant to me but honestly it could be many other plants. Crush a leaf and smell it, that will be another clue. It would also help if you would fill out your location on your page. That way someone from your area might recognize the plant. It really does help because if you are in a tropical area there are a lot of plants that start out looking that way, like it kind of looks like a fushia to me too. That would really only apply if you are in zone 9 or above. Anyway, welcome!

Agree, seems to be in the mint family, plectranthus verticillatus comes to mind.

edited: seing the new picts below, they are not plectranthus, but surely still consistent with mint family.

Any fragrance on the leaves when crushed?
