A good way of testing if it is a Plumbago is if it has lots of sticky hairs below the flower on the calyx.

Wow, Thanks for such quick responses. I added one more pic although unless you can zoom in on it, it may not be very helpful. There are 5 petals on each flower. The plants are not at my house so it may be a while before I get there to take additional pics; but, I will do that when I can. In the meantime, the Plumbago looks like it might be it from the pics I saw of that.
Thanks again!

I could guess though... Maybe it's a Plumbago.

I can't really see what the flower is shaped like. How many petals does it have? What do the inside parts of the flower look like? I will try my best if you can add a few more images. :)
