    Default Cirrhopetalum

    This is one of two Cirrhopetalums that I have. With lots of flowers. Obviously happy with my kitchen window. This one was labeled Cirr. lepidum, but it doesn't look like it. The flowers are the right shape but much darker. Either there is a great variation in color, or it was mislabeled. If anybody knows, please let me know.

    I like it, but I am not wild about it.

    Default Wow. What a nice looking plant.

    I think it might be Cirrhopetalum loherianum.

    A bit darker than the blooms of my own plant, that was previously posted.

    Thank you for your nice comments. I am planning on trading this one and a couple of others for something different.

    Nelson, thanks for your input. I think mine is similar to yours, but not as brightly colored.

    I think I have the correct name for this baby! It's Cirr. curtisii.
