Clarkia speciosa ssp. immaculata
Magenta flowers with a white eye, over a trailing plant with slender leaves. Some sources say it's perennial (but only to zone 7). It has certainly behaved like an annual in my zone 6 garden, where it has performed best in pots allowing it to cascade over the rims. In my experience, it seldom looks tidy, but very cheerful in bloom.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
