Mystery garden plant!

This plant is about a meter high, and is quite bushy, almost shrub-like, although not very woody, with bright magenta flowers. It is a herbaceous perennial, with ovate, mid-green, deeply veined leaves which are matt, i.e. non glossy. I came across it today in a customer's garden and I don't recognise it, so could do with some help! (Apologies for the poor quality of the photos, my proper camera is broken.)

    It looks to me like Mirabilis Jalapa, the 4 0 clock plant, but I'm probably wrong.

    That looks like it! Thanks, that's really helpful! :-)

    I agree.
