Asked September 15, 2016, 5:02 PM EDT

I was told this was a "Lipstick plant " is that correct? First pic is the flower. It doesn't bloom very often but it lasts over a month.

Aeschynanthus radicans is usually called the lipstick plant. There are many Aeschynanthus, so there is some variation if you look up online images for them. Here is a page from the Missouri Botanical Gardens about lipstick plant: http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderDetails.aspx?kempercode=b542
