Lipstick vine


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Staggeringly good introduction by Jens Nilsen from the China-Myanmar border region. This incomparable Lipstick Vine species is comment-provoking even out of flower with abruptly pendulous branches holding thick, long leaves. The red tubular flowers are the cherry on the Aeschynanthus sundae. Young plants, best in airy well-drained soil for epiphytes.
