Scaevola ramosissima flowers are 15-25 mm long. This looks like an aberrant Lobelia purpurascens. Did the leaves have a purplish tinge on the back?

Possibly Lobelia anceps

Thanks Steve. The flowers are right for Lobelia anceps, and the leaves not too bad, though the stems do not really look angled.

I agree, Lobelia anceps, though it is a bit of an odd spot for it - wettish but not at all saline.
