IDed as an Aeschynanthus
From a botanical garden's conservatory. Leaves seem to look 'hoya-ish'.

Thanks for any assistance rendered.

Okay, my thoughts: Although the leaves are opposite (as are Hoya), they appear to be a little fuzzy. I haven't come across any fuzzy leaved Hoya.

Also, Hoya are Asclepiad and the flower form is very distinct. That flower is not a Hoya flower.

Its interesting, though. Maybe someone will have some thoughts on what it is.

We cross posted but Jean may have it. Look at this photo of Aeschynanthus radicans:

I agree, definitely an Aeschynanthus. It reminds me of one I have/had Lipstick Vine (Aeschynanthus radicans 'Mona Lisa')
