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.

Kniph, perhaps compare to the photos here to try and narrow it down

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.
