Aeschynanthus longicaulis or 'Black Pagoda?'

snappyguyFebruary 10, 2012

I recently acquired a 6" basket of an Aeschynanthus that was labelled "Black Pagoda." Now that it has bloomed, I believe it is actually A. longicaulis, which along with A. speciosus, was used to create Black Pagoda by Lyndon Lyon Greenhouses. I thought I would post here as I don't want to trouble LLG to identify a plant they are familiar with when I did not purchase it from them.

Thanks,

Mark
