I too called them velvet flowers lady's slippers until I did some search They are torenia-blue. white.,pink or purple. The blue are common and just come up without invitation in the rainy season. This flower that you see in the photo was a gift from a friend I see it has come up this rainy season Normally these colours excepting the blue just disappear.

@allknowing Yes, they do. Sometimes, I have found them in the yard where I have not planted them. Maybe the birds or the wind distributed the seeds every where in the ground.
