Our collection from an area little visited by Westerners and part of our ongoing effort to collect and grow comparative specimens from across its range in Vietnam and China.  Same genus as Lipstick Vine, this shrubby gesneriad has proven hardy in mild gardens here in western Washington.  Tubular red-orange flowers.  Often epiphytic or lithophytic, this requires good drainage.  Great container plant which allows for moving inside during serious winter blast.  A Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy offering.
