Description:
A strong growing species of this herbaceous climber, forming a large congested clump of tuberous roots, from which arise robust twinning stems to 4-5m tall, with broadly lanceolate alternate leaves. Bearing large terminal umbels of bright orange long funnel shaped pendant flowers for most of the year where we collected the seed, in dense forest at 3300m on the Cordillera de Talamanca in Costa Rica in 2004. Best grown in a rich well draining soil with shade for the roots and protection from severe frost.
