Mexican Oakleaf (NOT!)

Hello All:

Well, what I thought was Mexican Oakleaf finally flowered. Its 
definately not Asteraceae, but I still can't identify it. The flower 
is a very pale mauve-pink with five petals. The flower is bilaterally 
symetrical with one petal to the top, and two on the bottom. The 
style is to the bottom, and it appears to have four anthers. The 
pollen is cream coloured, but the immature anthers were dark blue.

Any ideas?
