What tree is this? ID needed!

SFBayArea9December 22, 2012

It is 8 feet tall & the canopy has just begun forming; when mature profuse deep blue-purple flowers cover the tree.

Leaves are oblonceolate, which see in below link along with trunk and canopy.

Closest I can ID it is: Hamelia cuprea, but the flower colors of that do not match.


It is NOT Jacobina, otherwise known as a Justicia, because Jacobina only grows 24-36 INCHES TALL.
It is NOT Royal Empress, because Empress leaves are too wide.
It is NOT Jacaranda, because leaves are totally different.
It is NOT Ardisia venosa or A. humilis
