Tropical Argentinan vine that has surprising hardiness (down to 10F)- can be pruned to a shrub. Weird, large toothbrush like flowers of several different colors- with light to dark orange being the eventual end color. When I first saw this plant I thought it was being attacked by a bunch of colorful, spiny caterpillars. Very ornamental in full flower.
