Pyrostegia venusta aka Flame Vine, Flame Creeper or Orange Trumpets. Native to this area of Brazil but an absolute devil to propagate.

Actually I don't think it IS Pyrostegia, which is a vine with pronounced tendrils, , and your plant has much larger ribbed leaves.
Ian can you have another look, I think it might be some sort of Acanthacea - justicia or something similar.?

The leaves look more like Acanthacea - justicia than the Pyrostegia. Thanks. I'm going to keep it growing in the pot and try to overwinter it in the house. Any suggestions how to do it?

It's not Acanthacea-justicia. Any other guesses??? Thanks

Maybe Justicia chrysostephana

I'm also still going for some sort of justicia - what about Justicia spicigera ("Mexican honeysuckle")

Here is a link that might be useful: sample photo
