    I have been taking photos of all the Renanthera I have come across in an effort to ID this one. So far no luck. It is a hardy plant that blooms well as long as it gets some full sun and regular watering and fertilizing. IMG_9387.JPG IMG_9389.JPG

    Do you have any plant measurements to help with the ID? From the little I know of these it seems that this can be a determining factor more than some others.

    Your flowers look like Ren. phillipinensis. My plant, Ren. phillipinensis has similar color, flower shape and branching habit. What is your plant and leaf shape look like? True Ren. phillip has very thick, wide and short rigid leaf that is about 3-4" a cross. It kindda resemble bigger version of Trichoglottis brachiata.
