This plant is a dancing dolphin. I didn't get a good angle, but it does look like a dolphin!

Linda, that looks like a Columnea plant - very nice. Where did you find yours? I'd love to have one!

Yes, Kay, it is a columnea. I found it at a local plant festival. This plant has been blooming non stop for 6 months. The other dancing dolphin I had only bloomed once in the Spring. I have another that has shiny leaves and orange flowers but they never open to the dolphin shape like this one. I love fun, interesting plants!

Beautiful, does the flower have much nectar? Is it attractive to insects and hummers?
