|It surprised me that my attention got drawn on that big shrub by the river as the flowers were as green as the foliage, but they were big and bell-shaped, I think around 10cm.|
I thought maybe in the Solanaceae family but couldn't find a match so far..
Funny is that while I was focusing on one of the flowers and at the exact moment I pressed the shutter, a hummingbird came feeding on it, that was luck!
Ants seemed to be fond of it too..

|Everything about the plant reminds me of Iochroma australe which I once had Myriam, so Solanaceae seems most likely. The flowers look like a cross between Brugmansia and Cobaea! |
I'm looking .. seem to have lost the tropical plants site I once used.
Solandra looks similar ..
Look at fig. 43 on this pdf .. although I can't work out if there's an example given!
The google link to the pdf offered a translation, there's no diagrams although the pages and figure no.'s are given.
I picked out an example of Bignoniaceae after #45 but that looks less likely.

|I went backwards on the plantillustrations site, found Markea viridiflora or Solandra viridiflora ..|
I couldn't get the Brazil site to check, so googled and found a name in a link, Dyssochroma viridiflora ..

|Dyssochroma viridiflora appears to be the same plant as Markea viridiflora, although the plantlist says they are both accepted names, the reference to 'Ducke' is given.|

I feel that Dyssochroma viridiflora is THE one Janet! You are unbeatable!
