Flower ID help needed!

A very pretty flower found in a front yard of a friend living in Mississippi.
I’ve never known flower names, but know there are people out there that would know.

Is there anyone at Mississippi State?  or at Arboretum in Picayune, MS?  or anywhere?

+++  A request of help was sent to Felder Rushing and he responded with the following:

 

your plant is a tropical perennial named Clerodendron ugandense, commonly called blue glory bower … i am surprised it is in petal, because it usually gets killed by freezes even in the panhandle of florida. must be in a protected place or something.
