I was in Jamaica last week (early November) and this was flowering and driving the butterflies and hummers crazy. There were old bloom stalks and empty seed pods from previous flowering episodes. It has woody srems and looks as though it has been propagated from cuttings. Approximatel four feet tall, I have seen similar plants here in Florida but not exactly like this. Someone must know the ID. What is it? Any one have it for sale or trade? I would love it for my fall butterflies. Thanks, Mike

i always get these two confused and i'm not completely sure that the PF files aren't a little confused too.

I did some further research once pointed in the proper direction and it is C. paniculatum. Otherwise known as the pagoda flower. I even found a specimen from Crowley's Nursery in Sarasota. Thanks for the help.
