I take secret trips while y'all are working. LOL...Just joking....this plant was given to a friend of mine and she in turn gave me a cutting.... I think I'll take some cuttings of it and bring them to the FL plant swap.

I got the answer.

it's a Gloxinia sylvatica...common name Bolivian Sunset...Tropical plant.

Aha well done, its a really pretty plant, I've not heard of it but I will look out for it in future.
