What is This Houseplant?

I am reposting this again because I still can't find out what the name of this hanging plant is. I am pretty sure I purchased it at Home Depot or Lowe's here in Portland. The stems are long and very sturdy. It has flowered twice and each time with just one flower. Some people are suggesting it is from the honeysuckle family. Please help.

How about a Bird of Paradise plant perhaps?

I believe you've got a Cape Honeysuckle. A pretty hardy plant which if planted outside can get pretty big, but those lovely orange sets are so cheery and the hummers love them!

Yes, lipstick plant it is. Relative of honeysuckle, grows fabulously outdoors, and as aloham58 says, the hummie-birds jes luv 'em! Interesting. I've never seen one growing indoors! Usually outdoors, vines ofttimes covering fences or lattice or somehing. And the blossoms are quite profuse.

You're in Oregon, Susan...I'm in California. I've seen them plentiful on the Coast (Santa Barbara thru San Luis Obispo an' more) but now live in Tehachapi, in the mountains, 4000+' elevation and we have them here as well. The sea-level Coast has salt air, here we have snow and the plants seem to really thrive no matter where I've seen 'em growing.

For more info, if you don't have any local nurseries that can help you might try 'Googling' lipstick plant--or go to AskJeeves.com or some such site. I know there are lotsa sites that can help. I can't think of any right off tho. Good luck...an' I hope you can get your beautiful plant to continue in good health. It truly is a gorgeous plant!
