I saw a large number of these Foldwings growing out of a hillside in the lower town. It's larger and brighter than our Chinese Foldwing (Dicliptera chinensis) found on the higher slopes. Showy Foldwing is an apt name for this bright and beautiful flower. Please correct me if I identified it wrong. Panicled Foldwing (Dicliptera paniculata) is a similar looking flower (and I may be confusing the present one with this).
Showy Foldwing (Peristrophe speciosa)–Please confirm.
