Finally one of your Peru flowers that I recognize - we call it the Bottle Brush Plant, it is Callistemon citrinus.

Thank you very much for the information. I do not think it is a callistemon. I know that plant, look here for my photo from Australia: . This one is much softer and smaller than a callistemon and the leaves are different

Ah, yes, I see - the leaves are certainly different.
It is maybe the Chenille Plant - Acalypha hispida.
Some are very small, while the giant version has long, long red 'flowers'.
Or it is still a 'mystery plant' :-))

I guess that you are right, thank you very much :-)
