How large is this plant? The leaves throw me off a bit, I was wondering if this is a Comparettia. Is it possible to get a clearer picture of the flowers?

Hi Ursula
Photo sent to me blurry, not possible to get another, nor size
Bill on a different forum says it's Comparettia macroplectron

It sure looks like it in the picture. I've never seen one in person.
