Guess the flower

 Yesterday I saw some nice flowers, would be interesting to know what
they are. I was stopped in the car so I got a quick look but couldn't
get out to investigate.  Low thick clump of foliage, light green,
reminded me just a little bit of succulent foliage but it was not a
succulent.  Single flowers on a long stalk held high above the foliage;
one flower per stalk as far as I could tell; flowers were a brilliant
purple-dark pink. I thought maybe geum but I don't see a picture that
looks like what I saw. 
This was in an area that rarely gets frost, it was growing with statice
and some pelargoniums nearby.  Can you point me at something?
