Looks like one of the Aeschynanthus (lipstick plant). Not sure which one.

I think Patootie is right. Your plant has such beautifully colored flowers. Maybe you can post your picture on the African Violet and Gesneriad forum for the right species name.

Yes I knew it was Aeschynanthus, just not sure of the species name, the flowers seem so small and narrow.

I would guess pullei (leaf shape, calyx, pollen color, lack of additional colors on the flower ), but I would love to know where you saw it!

Keyring, I photographed this plant at Sunset Flowerland in Fairfield ME which is my local garden center, they have an awesome collection of houseplants, and several different Aeschynanthus.
