May 2011: New Flower Identification Challenge

Another flower I cannot identify.
It has fuzzy stem, leaves and bud that looks as it's inflated and has a pointy end - that's where flower it sticking out. But when flower is gone this little bud-box stays - just becomes a little redder I think. This plant was climbing a tree with just a little help and otherwise occupied quite a territory by spreading vines all over other flowers.

May 2011: Another flower needs identification :)


  1. Nina, I am SO enjoying your explorations, and learning about California flora! Thank you...this is gorgeous.

  2. Thank you Kate - the funniest thing is this is all really really under my nose so far!

    And we have an answer:
    Thunbergia gregorii, Orange Clock Vine!
