I bought this from a grower who I deal with often, the only problem is she never has tags on any of her plants. That makes it fun because I have to come home and look them up and I learn better. This plant is giving me a run for my money. I asked her what it was and she mumbled something like "Chinese Hat Vine"...Okay, so I did a search on it and turned up nothing. She did tell me it has a long botanical name but at the moment she could not recall it. So here I sit, trying to figure it out. It has small flowers that are shaped like a chinese workers hat. The flowers are orange with one reddish pistol in the center. This photo is scanned so it smashed and you can't see the true shape of the flower. So come on..take a shot at it..what is it?
